All I Can Handle: I'm No Mother Teresa
A Life Raising Three Daughters with Autism
Foreword by Jenny McCarthy
Dr. Spock? Check. Penelope Ann Leach (Remember her?) Check. What to Expect When You’re Expecting? Check. I had a seven hundred dollar Bellini crib for God’s sake!
Everything was perfect…”
...and so begins Kim Stagliano’s electrifying and hilarious memoir of her family’s journey raising three daughters with autism. Always outspoken, often touching, and sometimes heartbreaking, Kim Stagliano is a powerful new voice in comedic writing—her “Kimoir” (as she calls it) is the next must-read within the autism community and the literary world at large.
Kim Stagliano is a nationally recognized autism advocate and speaker. Although autism typically affects boys, Stagliano is in the unique position of having three daughters with full-blown autism, which has made her and her family the focus of national media attention. She is managing editor of ageofautism.com, the nation’s first daily web newspaper about the autism epidemic. She writes for The Huffington Post, is on the editorial staff of The Autism File magazine, and is a feature writer for Spectrum Magazine. She speaks at national autism conferences and has appeared on Good Morning America, ABC News, Fox News, and blogs around the world, as well as in The Chicago Tribune and The National Catholic Register. A former sales and marketing executive, Stagliano lives in Connecticut with her family. Her website is kimstagliano.blogspot.com.
