Great day at Egg & I and Summerfest

Every time I am at an event talking to people about Chasing the Rabbit I am reminded more and more why God put it on my heart to write this book. On Saturday, August 29 I did a morning book signing at Egg & I in Scarborough and then that evening I did another at Scarborough Summerfest. While it was a successful day selling books I consider it even more of a success because of the lives I know will be impacted.
I had the honor of talking with a man who had a son with autism that he has been struggling with for a long time, a grandmother trying to learn more so she can better understand her 8 year old grandson and a mom who just separated from her husband largely because he would not acknowledge that her son had autism. It breaks my heart to hear some of the stories people share with me. However, it warms my heart to know my book is helping them not feel alone in their journey.
