Open your minds to an exceptional life story: prepare to laugh, cry, love, and believe.When Uriel Sang exposes the topic of autism and addresses the general issue of exceptional people and people with differences. It promotes openness to unique children and adults in our society and opens one’s mind to see them as our equals, and not as a burden. It is an unforgettable journey for any reader, at any age.
I am always interested in hearing the stories of other Autism parents. Each one of us has taken a different path to discovering the differences that our kids have. For me, I know that my child was born with it, but there are those that believe that their children developed it after a vaccine, as Uriel's parents do.
Now, I am not one to discredit what a person believes, as that is not my place. I however, do not believe that vaccines cause Autism, but rather a vaccine induced brain injury that has similar characteristics to Autism.
That being said, I appreciate this story, because it provides real insight into one families journey with the unknown. I know first hand, how emotional a diagnosis like this, can be, and I also know that each family reacts to the news differently. Such as for Uriel's parents...his mother does not want to speak on it, at all, and has no desire to let anyone else know. Some parents feel shame, some parents don't.
All I can really say, is that this story is full of real, raw emotion. Disappointment, and triumphs, and it needs to be read by anyone that is on their own journey with Autism, or know someone that is on this journey. It really is a great read, regardless of what you believe causes, or doesn't cause Autism.
You can find When Uriel Sang, on Amazon...I highly recommend that you read it!
