Second Chance: How Adoption Saved a Boy with Autism & His Shelter Dog

Second Chance by Sandra J. Gerencher

This book is an absolutely beautiful story. If it does not touch a place in your heart after reading it, then you have no heart.

It is so much more than just a story of adoption. It is a story of a new beginning for what I call "throw away animals and people".

The animals that no one wants because they are not pretty or meet a certain criteria. And the children who are not perfect and have special needs. There are hundreds of special children and animals out there waiting for someone to love them and give them a home. They deserve a second chance at life.

In this book Chance, a dog, is doing the talking which my grandson's thought was neat. They found the book to be funny and they loved it. As an adult I agree with them, but I see so much more to this story.

What an excellent read for everyone. I encourage people from all walks of life to buy this book. Not only will your children or grandchildren enjoy this book but so will you.
