At times, we wonder how it all happened, how we got to this point in our lives. We began to think about why this had happened to us, what we had done to deserve this. It took us years to realise that nothing we had done had caused this; it was simply a result of things beyond our control.
It could be so easy to label ourselves as victims. To be honest, we felt life had let us down. We have very sick children with a disease that cannot be cured. We learned that they also have autism and then another blow; I was also given a serious diagnosis. Any person with all of this weight to carry might well feel like a victim, so why shouldn’t we? Why shouldn’t we both say “why me?” We’re sure many parents of children with autism reading this book may well feel the same. It’s ok to say this. In fact, we believe it’s crucial that you do. Saying it out loud both allows you to admit it and then deal with it. We were victims, if we even use that word, of a difficult and deeply complex set of circumstances. We have discovered, however, that there is more to this; it doesn’t end here, not like this, not for us. This admission helped us to feel empowered, and to believe that we could, somehow, find a way through the highs and lows in this story called “life.” But. More challenges were to come the way of our family unit. More of this later.

This is a book about hope. And miracles. It shows that, to quote a line from George MacDonald’s famous poem, ‘love loves on beneath the wave,’ when you truly believe in miracles. In honouring a loved one. In bringing that loved one home.
This is a book I recommend for everyone to read. It offers us insights into how to recalibrate our lives, particularly relevant in our current pandemic COVID-19 world. We have, in my view, reached Another Zero.This book has landed into our laps right now when we most need Giselle’s intuitive knowing to help and guide us on our way. Giselle is a fountain of wisdom. This book is written from the ‘heart-space’ of a very authentic woman who details how she moved from the high achieving corporate work-space to one as a life coach where she uses her sensitivity, her connectivity and her loving-kindness to help others seek and find their true potential in life. Giselle’s writing reflects clear emotional depth, powerful insights into how we can enhance our well-being and reach our full potential. It uses a unique style with thought provoking questions on how we can, perhaps, make clearer choices and small changes that may result in greater happiness. It offers tips and advice that can be utilised to reset the balance in our lives.It is written in a very engaging style. – Dr. Phil Noone
