This is such an interesting memoir about acceptance - accepting what life brought to you and trying to get the best out of it. In a way I identified myself in several passages. The author's son has autism, and she tells through the pages of the book her saga from pregnancy to 8 years later, and everything in between, including finding the right diagnosis to understand what was the problem. But I feel that the main message of the book is more like in the sense of accepting. Once she accepted that her son had autism and that it wouldn't go away, she could change her point of view and learn how to live with that (instead of trying to "fix" what couldn't be fixed). There are so many ways that we can incorporate that mindset in our lives, even if we don't have a child with special needs. Some kids are just extra special and it takes some kind and loving parents to make them great people despite the difficulties.
