This enthralling memoir is the day-by-day story of how one little boy was saved from a path leading to autistic isolation. It is also a first-hand account of the new model of research and treatment pioneered by Stanley Greenspan, M.D. that makes this recovery possible for others. Walker, whom pediatricians worried would never walk, talk, or perhaps even hear or see, was lucky enough to be born to a family who would not accept defeat. Pat Stacey reveals the darkest fears, struggles, exhaustion, tiny victories, and eventual joys her family faced as they gradually brought Walker into full contact with the world.

Speedy delivery! Advertised as "very good" but with a little "schmutz" on the front cover. Front cover slightly bent but otherwise you couldn't tell that this book was used.
From the first chapter of this heart-moving novel it's easy to feel the sincerity in a mother's voice. Patricia a mother of two finds herself living with the fear of her autistic son never loving her. Threw out this novel Patricia let's the reader into her life and how to overcome uncontrollable challenges. The detail in every changing moment in Walkers life helps on the emotional rollercoaster. The only dislike within this story is not getting the full understanding of the way her husband handled and took the situation. This is an incredible read for all types of people because no matter whom you are. This story helps all readers appreciate what they have but open their eyes to the world around them. As much as it's hard to hear about another family's struggles this story instead of bringing your sprits down it helps give you hope about families to come or your own family. My Brother Dustin by Alden R. Carter is another book talking about kids with disabilities that I would recommend to others after reading this story. After holding my breath, hoping for the best for this incredible mother and son and hearing their amazing story I would give this book 5 out of 5 starts and think everyone should read this inspiring book.
