I have read your book in absolute awe, gut wrenching agony trepidation, feeling every sleepless night and desperate tears. How courageous your writing has been and how vital in its raw agony that will give others the opportunity to express theirs.
I went to bed and thought I would read a few pages of Saving My Sons and finally at 4 am on page 159 I finally put the book down. I haven’t slept the whole night and I have been crying so much.
I’ve just finished reading your book. You had me glued from the very first page! I’ve never met a person with such strength and determination. Your boys are infinitely lucky to have you as their mom, always fighting and never giving up.
I’m only on the acknowledgements page and I’m already crying
What do you say to someone who has laid her soul bare for the world to see, so that others may benefit from her pain? Your book should be called “Saving my Sons…and thousands of families with them!”. I have cried for 2 days reading your book, and I don’t know what else to say to you other than Keep Fighting Warrior Mom.
Ilana, I’ve started reading your book and I’m in awe of what you and your husband have achieved and how you’ve turned adversity into your destiny! We loved being at your launch and hearing you speak – we were so inspired by your story of resilience and hope.
I started reading this on a flight to Cape Town – big mistake as I sat there with the tears streaming down my face.
This book should be a movie. It has all the elements of a great story, heartache, despair, hope, joy and overcoming adversity.
I have been reading the book , and I cannot put it down. I spent about 3-4 hours straight on Saturday just reading and re-reading, going through so many emotions and living through the experiences. What an incredible book!
I must say I was sceptical at first at the use of the word possible ‘cure’ especially as I am a doctor but after sobbing through your brilliant heart wrenching -account I only have one word for you. Awe!Thank you for bringing me up to speed with the latest developments and research. Your resilience persistence perseverance and dedication is inspiring!
I have just finished reading your book! Such a brilliant , powerful and inspiring story! I definitely shed a few tears while reading it. Being a teacher I learnt so many things about autism that I didn’t know. Thank you for educating me and helping me understand the true make-up of autism.
Thank you for revolutionizing the understanding of autism among laypeople and professionals. I am encouraging everyone to read it! Well done for bringing us your story in your incredible book. I love how it was told through so many people’s viewpoints.As a speech therapist I now have a much better understanding of autism.
Here I am, still amazed and lost for words.. No dictionary can explain the thoughts racing through my head after reading your book! I simply couldn’t put it down!
