Mother of Child with Autism Discovers the Power of Poetry

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. -- "Autism knocked on my door in the middle of a life I thought was under control, and settled in comfortably behind the eyes of my 2-year-old son."
In an instant, Jennie Linthorst's life spiraled into darkness.
Her son, Graham, was diagnosed with autism and she became emotionally paralyzed. The "original family dream" shifted and her inner peace was shattered.
Linthorst's intimate journey as a Manhattan Beach mother with a special-needs child is told in deeply emotional - and sometimes blunt - verses in her recently published book of poems, "Autism Disrupted: A Mother's Journey of Hope" (Cardinal House Publishing).
