Summary
Jennifer Althaus watched helplessly as her daughter, Celeste, battled with confusion and daily anxiety. Exhausted and at her wits' end, Jennifer sought and found an unconventional yet profoundly practical therapy that would change all their lives. Having a child with Autism is something no parent anticipates yet the number of children diagnosed with Autism in Australia and around the world is on the rise. With answers to the cause of Autism still seeming distant, struggling families seek all the help they can get. For Jennifer's family, this help came in the unlikely form of an ex-racing Greyhound named Minnie. A Journey of Love is an uplifting and powerful memoir that speaks to the pain and heartache associated with parenting a child with autism while celebrating the love, hope and achievement of adopting an ex-racing Greyhound and training her as an assistance dog
