Here's one of many endorsements the book received:
Nancy Bernotaitis has found a way to cope with the stress involved in parenting a child with autism—her quirky humor makes a way when the way seems impossible. Nancy’s work with the Autism Society of Dayton is well known, and her new passion—the establishment of a farm for young adults with autism, called Good Works Farm—are just two examples of her commitment to make the world a better place for families that live with autism. All proceeds of this book go toward the establishment of Good Works Farm. Readers can feel good about their contribution toward a worthy cause, and raise their endorphin levels at the same time. Quite a bang for your buck! Kathleen Deyer Bolduc, author of The Spiritual Art of Raising Children with Disabilities (Judson Press, 2014) and Autism & Alleluias (Judson Press, 2010).
100% of the proceeds of the book goes to Good Works Farm.
