The father of twin boys -- one of whom is autistic -- shares his journey to a personal awakening

Stumbling Upon the Extraordinary

Stumbling Upon the Extraordinary by Bill Drover has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Bill Drover was a successful businessman living the American Dream: a good job, a big house, nice cars, and a beautiful wife—the love of his life, Jeannie. He and Jeannie had struggled to become pregnant with their twin boys, Joseph and Nicholas, and when they were born, their lives seemed complete. But as the boys grew, Bill and Jeannie noticed Nicholas was not developing at the same rate as Joseph. An official diagnosis gave a name to their fear: autism.

As he learned the best ways to help Nicholas and to relate to both of their boys, Bill found himself on a journey to a personal awakening. The lessons Nicholas taught led him to a realization of what was really important and revealed to him the everyday angels making miracles in our world. Bravely, he changed the path of his life to reflect this new awareness. In this poignant, emotional memoir, Bill Drover invites us into his world—a place shadowed by autism, but brightly lit by the love of family.

Bill Drover lives in New Hampshire with his wife and twin boys. In addition to spending time with his family, Bill enjoys coaching his sons’ baseball and basketball teams, writing, and following the Boston sports scene.
