A Heart Warmer,
This review is from: A Friend Like Henry (Paperback)
"A FRIEND LIKE HENRY" is a remarkable and true story of one family's struggle.
It describes the parents coming to terms with their son's autism, the battle with professionals for a diagnosis and more importantly some real support to help them survive under incredible pressure. The breakthrough is occasioned by getting a golden retriever (Henry), and the creative and imaginative way they use Henry to help their son is humorous,delightful and inspiring.
I read the story aloud to my partner, and frequently struggled to read because I was choking with emotion!
It is heart warming because of the parents' refusal to give up,battling insuperable odds to give their child the life he deserves. The progress he makes is nothing less than staggering...
I recommend it to anyone.
