This is an amazing and uplifting story of parents who never gave up on their child. Though my family is not personally affected by autism, I think we can all relate to the importance of accepting our children as they are. This young woman had incredible perseverance in overcoming her challenges in hopes of making the world more accepting for all people. A great read--I highly recommend it.
