The adage is old, a picture says a thousand words.  But it has never been more true than in FROM HEARTACHE TO HOPE: Middle Tennessee Families Living with Autism, a stunning book of black-and-white photographs featuring 18 families living with an autistic child.

The families are racially and socioeconomically diverse but many of their challenges, their dreams and their hopes are strikingly similar.   Rebekah Pope’s stunning black-and-white photos are accompanied by the beautifully-written text by author Leisa A. Hammett.

Hammett, the mother of an autistic daughter and a dear friend of mine, will be discussing her new book at Nashville’s Davis-Kidd tomorrow night at 7 pm. Please join me as we celebrate this book and the families whose stories inspire us!
