Review; The Spark: A Mother's story of Nurturing Genius By: Kristine Barnett

The Spark: A Mother's Story of Nurturing GeniusThe Spark: A Mother's Story of Nurturing Genius by Kristine Barnett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An amazing and inspirational memoir of a mother's love, devotion, determination, and the fight to remove the boundaries and stigma of autism in her son's life.
There are many lessons to find within the pages of The Spark, but a mother's drive and faith permeates off each page. Never giving up, thinking unconventional has lead her son, Jacob, from life skills class to teaching class in college and being in line for a Nobel Prize. This was not an easy road, it was filled with negativity, low expectations, and set backs, but Ms. Barnett fought and never took no for an answer. She has left some words and lessons to live by- to have faith in your child, ignite their spark, and let them fly, for the only thing in the way is limited thinking.. you remove that and everything is possible.
