This book made me smile, cry and laugh out loud. I have a son with autism the same age as Greg and I could really relate to the joys and challenges Rick described in raising a child with autism -- especially the concerns about the future. The fact that our children have so much to offer is underscored by this touching tribute. --Barb Yavorcik, Executive Director, Autism Society of Ohio
