Listening to Margret talk about how autism makes you look at life in a different light...no truer words could be spoken. When you see the "veil of autism" begin to be lifted slightly...there are no words to describe your emotions...and I could "feel" Margret's emotions in her email exchanges, and Kate was so receptive and communicatively on point, that I was able to hear her voice and her passion and excitement as I was reading.
In closing, although my son was able to "find his voice" and, despite the pediatric neurologist telling us that he would never "develop any useful language" he is now in his second year at our Community College.Read more ›
If you've ever wondered how some people have such incredible passion for a purpose, read the book and the email exchange between Kate and Margret. It will have you jumping out of the chair and eager to support their cause. Besides the email exchange, which by the way also reveals what's in Keli's (Margret's autistic son) magnificent mind, there are firsthand accounts from newly verbal autistic people, and candid photos and quotes from many Hollywood folks wearing Keli's golden hat. A class act!! If you care about giving these gifted people a chance at life, buy the book and support the foundation. This noble and worthy cause needs the highest possible attention.
In the book Kate says "People with Autism have the potential to achieve great things, but only when given the appropriate support and education". I have seen this first hand and in fact, a few weeks ago went to an event where a 20 year old autistic young man gave his account of growing up with autism. When he was 3, his parents were told he would never speak.Read more ›

The book is as I expected. The letters between Kate and mother Magrit are interesting if not suprising. Keli's poems are the best part of the book. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Margot Paterson
