Overview

All Sarah and Evan Davis ever wanted was a child, but after two dangerous miscarriages, they face an unbearable-and uncertain-future. Evan tries to console her, but Sarah refuses to be swayed. Against doctor's advice, Sarah allows herself to get pregnant, and this time gives birth to a beautiful boy, Kade. At long last, both Sarah and Evan believe their lives are complete, at least until their son is diagnosed with autism, something neither of them expected-a change that leads to an even harsher reality: sometimes love, no matter how hard, must be enough.

Editorial Reviews

Cynthia Hagans
Autism Consultant for Lawton Public Schools

This novel gave a realistic portray of the struggles that parents face with autism and their autistic child. It showed the slow acceptance of the fact that their child had a disorder. It also showed how a family goes through everyday life with a child who has autism, the struggles with the child, and with their marriage.
