Hi Ilana. I finally got to read your book during this
break. Your book moved me so much and I had no idea of what autism actually was until I read your book. I knew you struggled, I saw you often, so tired but
always smiling and so strong. My office got me your book for my birthday
because I kept saying how much I wanted to read it. I did not know the extent
of your struggles, nor did I understand Autism. You put so much in perspective
for me and your book touched me in so many ways. I am fortunate not to have
kids with Autism but James struggles so much with learning difficulties and
concentration and you opened my eyes to so many things. Most importantly that I
am blessed and that your struggles and successes with your boys over the years
have touched so many people. I have always admired you but I never fully
understood and I am so inspired by your book and your story and just wanted to
say thank you, for sharing your knowledge and for educating so many of us who
just did not understand. You are inspiring, heroic, and I just wanted to say
thank you to you and your amazing team for what you do for the kids. Thank you
for teaching me and for making me realize how grateful I need to be. You are
truly a hero in my eyes, as a mom, mentor, educator, you are inspiring all
those around you in so many different ways and I am one of them. G-d bless you
and your beautiful family.
