What if the spirit of Autism, which impacts the lives of families around the globe, came to life in a way that not only aided loved ones in effectively supporting those on the spectrum but fostered an appreciation for the many gifts that come along with one of the most misunderstood disorders of our time? In this riveting fictional book about true acceptance, self-identity and unconditional love, a personified Autism challenges everything Rachelle thinks that she knows about parenting and more importantly, herself. She realizes that although Autism temporarily took her girls’ words and focus, it brought with it an understanding of the brain’s ability to rewire itself, various ways of human communication, experiencing the inexplicable kindness of strangers, and knowledge of the effects that food choices have on the body. Each household receives their own unique offering to assist them along this tumultuous yet awesome journey. Some come neatly wrapped while the packaging of others may make their value seemingly unrecognizable. However, they are all indeed gifts; the first gifts of Autism.
