Continues the chronicle of Raun Kaufman's triumph over autism, achieved with the help of his parents' unconditional love, and presents other cases of inspiring victories by special children

Blackwell North Amer
In 1979, the classic best-seller Son-Rise was made into an award-winning NBC television special, which has been viewed by 300 million people worldwide. Now, Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues presents not only the expanded and updated journal of Barry and Samahria Kaufman's successful effort to reach their "unreachable" child but goes beyond to include a sensitive portrayal of how that singular event has become a worldwide phenomenon.
Part One of Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues is the astonishing and poignant record of Raun Kaufman's development from a lifeless, non-communicative child into an active, loving, and verbal little boy. When he was a year old, Raun began to withdraw from human contact. Oblivious to his surroundings, he appeared deaf and blind, staring silently for hours, examining his fingers, rocking endlessly, totally self-stimulating. The diagnosis - autism. An irreversible condition.
The experts offered little hope, and as the Kaufmans watched their son slipping further and further into his impenetrable shell, they sensed time was critical. They decided to act on their own - crossing a bridge into uncharted territory in what became the adventure of their lives. When the Kaufmans completed their program based on unconditional love and total acceptance, their son showed no traces of his former condition.
Part Two tells of Raun's development after age four. His accomplishments surprise us and teach us much about love and limitless possibilities.
Part Three delivers a deeply moving account of five other ordinary families who became extraordinary when they refused to be daunted, refused to stop loving, and, guided by the Kaufmans, used the Son-Rise Program to reach their own "unreachable" children.
Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues is an awe-inspiring reminder that love made tangible can move mountains.

I will admit that I have not yet read this book, but I have heard Dr. Wayne Dyer speak about it and about the story behind the book (as well as the story behind the first book, titled simply SON-RISE.)
The story does, indeed, sound inspiring! I will try to find time to read it, I promise!
