Autism and blessing, these are two words not usually spoken in the same breath. When you think of autism: struggle, disability, hopelessness, fear, and grief may be the first words that come to mind. Autism is a Blessing by Patty Corrigan Myers is a book of hope. It is a story about a mother's personal struggle to overcome and answer all of the questions autism so aggressively throws in her family's face. Interlaced with testimonials from other families and friends who have a child with autism, this book stunningly illustrates the fact that those who deal with autism are never alone. Through this family's triumph, you will learn the important and clear steps to take once an autism diagnosis is given, and learn, as they have, that truly Autism is a Blessing. Patty Myers has a way of communicating her experience in realistic terms. She allows us to see the real her-the pain, the love, the depression, the hope, and in return we see ourselves in the same situation. -Troy Schmidt Author/Screenwriter of the Hermie & Friends series Patty's life has been a testimony of the incredible mercy and faithfulness of God.
