I believe every parent who has heard the words ‘your child has autism’ has a story that encapsulates the human spirit at its worst and at its best. --Julie Hornok.
DALLAS (PRWEB) October 02, 2018
United in Autism: Finding Strength inside the Spectrum, by author and advocate, Julie Hornok, releases today (Brown Books Publishing Group), October 2, 2018. This book highlights the stories of thirty incredible families from around the world who are raising children with autism.
Stepping forward as a global resource in this arena, Julie has used her experiences to mentor others. Through the National Autism Association of North Texas, Julie has spearheaded free Autism Moms Events for the past seven years. The hope these events brought to attendees inspired Julie to do more. United in Autism: Finding Strength inside the Spectrum opened the door to start UnitedinAutism.org and bring free United in Autism Moms Events across the country. United in Autism joins together with local autism charities to plan and implement events in their cities with the goal of connecting and pampering moms who would otherwise live in isolation.
“I wrote this book because I believe every parent who has heard the words ‘your child has autism’ has a story that encapsulates the human spirit at its worst and at its best,” Julie shares. “We have gone through periods of devastation, determination, and eventually, if we found hope, growth that enabled us to be change makers in the world.”
As a devoted parent of a daughter with autism, Julie Hornok has walked the same challenging road as the families featured in this book. She knows the mental and physical exhaustion and the isolation that comes with autism. Once her daughter began to progress well, Julie decided to pour her newly freed energy into moms walking the same journey.
Julie’s authentic and witty writing has also been published in Parenting Special Needs Magazine, Autism Parenting Magazine, LiteraryMama.com, AutismSpot.com, Thrive Magazine, DFWchild.com, Dallas Moms Blog, YogaDigest.com, John Brown University Devotional Book, and various Chicken Soup for the Soul Publications.
