Angela Conrad's two young sons have both been diagnosed with autism, wrecking any chance she can have a normal family life. Every day Angela has a mountain to climb 24/7, just to get somewhere close to keeping her children safe and happy and keep her house from looking like a war zone. This is her story of how she has battled the effects of a life-changing condition and learned to handle the ignorance of some of her friends, relatives and neighbors. A moving, inspiring read for all those whose lives are touched by autism. "Your child has autism," said the doctor. Who would have thought those few words could be so painful? That little sentence is a kind of death sentence. It's a death sentence for the normal life they were supposed to live. It's a death sentence for your marriage, if you let it. It's a death sentence for your dreams and hopes. It's a death sentence for the life that could have been.
