    I have read a lot of your postings but wow – this one really got to me – ASD – dreaded words that way too many parents hear. What a special dog you have to be able to write such a touching story!!

    Hi Carrie,

    I have a difficult question that I am struggling with regarding my own 8 yr old boy, who I suspect has Asperger’s. We are about to embark down the assessment road and I am agonizing, wondering if maybe we shouldn’t get that label that will change everything forever, that will either have to be kept a secret to let our boy just be a boy, or to tell him and risk him feeling “less” or “different” more so than he already does. What advice would you give me knowing what you know now and having been through so much. I just don’t know what will happen and I worry this will crush his spirit. I hope this isn’t too forward of me to ask and I apologize if it is…

    Wow, what a beautiful post, I am fighting back tears. I wish I could send Jack a hug, and a cuddle for Wolfie for making him feel free again x

    Hi Carrie,
    As a para and a dog lover, I thoroughly enjoyed reading your story, and immediately ordered “What Color is Monday?” I have worked as a para for 15 years, and love watching children grow, and seeing the world through the eyes of a child with autism. Jack is so fortunate to have such a loving family, but you are more fortunate to have Jack in your life! Thank you for sharing your family and educating the world!

    Your words are beautiful and brilliant and heart wrenching. The way sweet little “Wolfie” described the kids sent me to tears. It made me ache for a mother who would feel and think and write such precious things about me. They must be the luckiest of small people in the world.

    I read your posts and I just don’t know what to write. Your posts are just awesome and are the deepest voice in my head. I have 2 autistic children, none of em as «open» as Jack so, lots of misunderstanding, lots of crisis and lots of tears from mom. Thanks for your «voice».
