Dancing with Max Book Description:

The true story of a single mother's love and perseverance, her son's autism diagnosis with its challenges and gifts, and their triumph together over life's toughest obstacles. Journey with Emily Colson--daughter of Chuck Colson--as she takes you from her darkest days of pain to her adventure through life. With candor and wit, she shares about her personal battles and heartbreak when, as a suddenly single mother, she discovered her only child has autism. Emily illuminates the page with imagery--making you laugh, making you cry, inspiring you to face your own challenges. Along the way, we discover that Max's disability does not so much define who he is, but reveals who we are. Dancing with Max is not a fairy tale with a magical ending. It's a real-life story of grace and second chances and fresh starts in spite of life's hardest problems. And Max? Max will make you fall in love with life all over again, leaving you dancing with joy. This is the story that will inspire you to "get up and live," to break free of the barriers that threaten to constrict your life. And this is the young man who will capture, even change, your heart. Includes contributions from Chuck Colson, in his most personal writing since Born Again, as he details how Max's resilient spirit unraveled his thinking and brought out his tender side as a grandfather.
