How about a little summer reading?

Today I want to share with you Connor's Gift.

 This is a book written by an amazing woman Tracie, whom I am lucky enough to call family.

Tracie at our Annual Mother's Day Tea Party 

Even better than that?
                                                      
                It's written about her beautiful son, 

                                      
Connor

This amazing book sold out on Amazon at least once that I know of!

Here is what someone had to say about the book 
(The Forward correct?)

"Connor's Gift introduces the world to a very special boy and the family who love him. He is at once funny, charming, silly and sweet, and can also be a challenge that most would wish to avoid.
Until you've met this dynamic and very special boy, you cannot know what life with an autistic child is like in this New Age. And that is what makes Connor's Gift such an outstanding read."

I decided to give one away so someone else could enjoy the Carlos Family journey.
Even if you don't know anyone with Autism in their life, this is an amazing, inspirational story that everyone can enjoy.

If you would like to be entered into the drawing, here's what I would like you to do..

Stop by Connor's Gift Facebook page and say a quick hello. Even better, "Like" it!

I would love it if you could help spread the word about this amazing book as well!

I've included a button at the top of my side bar for you to use if you'd like to help out.

And last but not least,  leave me a comment!

Let me know, do you know anyone with Autism?

I would love to leave the drawing open until Connor's birthday which happens to be the same as Lil' Man's, but I'm too excited for you to start reading this amazing book- so waiting until July 31st is just too long!

How about we give it until....

June 12th


"I am here, and I will wait for you to put aside all your preconceived notions until you absolutely fall in love with me; and when you do, you will be loving YOU."

Hi Angie! I do know many children with Autism...I used to teach a special education preschool class! I loved each and every one of those kids so much and think about my "babies" all of the time. Especially when I pass the special ed classes at the kids' school and smile and greet the children in the "special" classes. The students that I had with Autism were some of my most challenging kids and I think I loved them so much more because of that. I got to watch their personalities come out little by little! I can't wait to read this book...I will wait until the 12th to see if I win it, otherwise I will go and buy it!
Hugs,
Le Anne

You know a good friend of mine has a 10 yr old who was just diagnosed autistic 18 months ago. They started seeking help for him at age 2. He was diagnosed ADD/ADHD, sensory disorders etc... and things never got better trying to treat him for those. Finally after years of this madness he was properly diagnosed and my girlfriend game unglued. She was so angry that all this time she couyld have been helping him and nobody understood what was wrong with him. I would love to give her this book. She may have already read it. She's real good about gathering facts.

Being the mother of a child with Asperger's I would LOVE to read this book. I feel so blessed to have a child with autism, I learn so much from him everyday. God Bless you Connor!
