Re: “Mom's revolution

Thank you for covering this story. I am a parent to a "recovered child'. I was told there was no hope, to start considering instutionalizing my child at age 4 because doctors and science claimed there was nothing else to do. These Moms, and the thousands of us that they have spoken for, have proved them wrong. Our children prove them wrong every day. We do read the science, we do study the body, and we apply basic knowledge in order to help our children. The information is there, the studies are there and it is a shame that medical professionals and science are slow to react...however it doesn't make it less true. It wasn't that long ago that we repeatedly heard there was no autism/gi connection...now that is accepted by the AAP. Anyone who has bothered to read the book, would clearly know that this is not specific to vaccines, not about celebs, not uneducated women, not propaganda...it is simply personal stories about these women and all of us across the world who are forcing answers to questions that have been avoided for years now and not accepting this disregard for their children that has been the norm. I applaud you for covering this story, the Thinking Moms book, and this wonderful Mom's journey and sharing hope and truth with others!!! This book should be a must read for everyone...it was filled with amazing courage and even if not effected by autism will make you find your inner strength.
