Soup Du Jour! A Message from Maya!

All My Readers,

As a Chicken Soup co-author I’m always looking for your stories to share with everyone else.  Not too long ago I did a “call out” to my members asking for heartwarming stories and was overwhelmed with over 2500 submissions.  I know you will enjoy hearing from others so I am going to be sharing them with you on a weekly basis.  Here is the thirteenth one from Maya!


A Message from Maya!


Dear Karen

Thank you so, so, so, so much.

I can’t find the right words to thank you because I think this word is nothing compared to what you have done for me.  You have opened my eyes to a new world.  Before communicating with you I was very sad because I felt lonely.  I thought that no one else understood me or how I felt thinking of my child’s future.  How can he manage his life or even live without me – I couldn’t sleep at night thinking of how he will live, study, get married, or have children in the future? 

Maybe you think I exaggerate but I really want to ask you something and I want you to answer me honestly in a personal message please.  “My child is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, do you think that he has a chance to be cured?   I mean to be treated and live a normal life just like any other child?  Please answer me and thank you very much. 

You are an angel .
