Author(s): Cecily Paterson
What do you do when your dream for a 'happy family' isn't working out?
Where do you go when no one can help your child?
When Cecily Paterson's son was diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), Cecily's life was thrown into chaos. Daily life became a daily struggle and everything she'd ever thought about love seemed to be turned upside down.
In the end, she'd have to learn to trust God, learn to love, and do just as much learning and growing as her beautiful little boy.
After her son's ASD diagnosis, Cecily went looking for a book that would give her not only practical help, but also emotional support and spiritual solace. She never found it, so she wrote it. Read Love Tears & Autism if you have a child with a disability, or if your friend or family member lives with autism. Or just read it if you like a good real-life story where God's grace shines through.
Love Tears & Autism won third prize in the 2012 Australian Christian Book of the Year (ACBOY) awards. This second edition includes updated and revised resources and a 'Where are we now' chapter.
