Just got your message today, and took a quick look at your site. Feel free to post my story about Stuey on foggyrock. I've been writing for 8+ years and have many stories about life with Stuey. Trying to put them together to market as a collection of essays and stories. Already used them as the basis of a screenplay, but this country mouse is having a hard time getting agents in LA to take note ... the story of raising a child with autism is one that has a tremendous audience.
If you'd like to talk more, email me at tmanzionemsc@aim.com.

Hello Ms. Terri,

I hope you are doing well. I am not sure whether or not you are the one who wrote the wonderful story "Joseph's Wish," from the 'Raising Kids On The Spectrum' book of the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series. The story, however, touched my heart and soothed my soul in a very positive way. Please let me know if you are the same Terri Manzione who wrote the story.

Best regards,
Hamza Hassan
