Terre Haute mother pens book “Two Brothers One Journey”
Lindsey Yates | WTHITV 10
“The national statistics are startling, one in 68 children in the United States is diagnosed with autism.
For one Terre Haute mother it’s an opportunity to shine a light on the need for research, early intervention, and appropriate treatment.”
“The mother of two found solace in the form of writing. “That is kind of how I started my blog, and my blog led me to do a lot of free-lance writing,” said Conrad.”
“The book is a personal story of love and loss. Conrad hopes it gives readers a sense of comfort. “If another family can take away that they are not the only one going through this, then the book was definitely worth it,” she said.”
