Book Description:
Elizabeth M. Bonker is a thirteen-year-old young lady with autism who cannot yet speak but who writes deeply revealing poetry, which was featured on PBS's Religion & Ethics Newsweekly. She excels in school with an educational aide.

Virginia G. Breen is the mother of three beautiful children, two of whom are profoundly affected by autism. Besides working to heal her children, Virginia is a venture capitalist investing in high-tech companies, and she sits on both corporate and nonprofit boards. She studied computer science at Harvard, business at Columbia, and philosophy in Singapore.

Elizabeth and Virginia live in northern New Jersey.

My Thoughts: This was a very touching book. Having a niece and a nephew with Autism and friends whose children have it as well, I have a special heart for kids with special needs. Elizabeth's poetry is awesome and it is so great that she has found a voice and a way to communicate. The only thing I had a problem with was Virginia's constant insistence on wanting to heal her children. That is not something she can do. We have power through Jesus to heal, yet we can't do it through our own strength and I just didn't get the sense that Virginia got that.
