The story behind the book “My Best Friend Goldie”

A single mother with two autistic children battling cancer wrote a book with her daughter. It is not about the struggles, but instead about the miracles and gratitude in their lives.  They find help in an unlikely place, the barnyard.  Here they not only encountered a miracle that gave them new life, they also found ways to overcome many struggles and met a warm community.  The book gives insights of innovative methods to provide therapy for children with autism.  Their story will inspire you, make you laugh and make you cry.  For many families it will provide helpful resources for dealing with persons with disabilities.  This story will be a gift to families with similar challenges.

With this story also comes a cry for help.  This cry is to preserve the farm experience for this family. The farm they are renting is being sold, so they need resources to buy it or purchase or rent another farm.  They want to use their own success to touch other families with their farm.  They dream of a place where many special needs children can experience the gifts they have experienced with animals.
