Letters to Sam
A Grandfather's Letters to His Grandson on Love, Loss and the Gifts of LifeBook - 2007
When his grandson, Sam, was born, Daniel Gottlieb began to write a series of heartfelt letters that he hoped Sam would read later in life. He planned to cover all the important topics: dealing with your parents handling bullies falling in love coping with death What motivated him was the fear that he might not live long enough to see Sam reach adulthood. You see, Daniel Gottlieb is a quadriplegic the result of a near-fatal automobile accident that occurred two decades ago and he knows enough not to take anything for granted. Then, when Sam was only fourteen months old, he was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disability, a form of autism, and suddenly everything changed. Now the grandfather and grandson were bound by something more: a disability and Daniel Gottlieb s special understanding of what that means became invaluable. A lovingly written, emotionally gripping book that offers unique and universal insights into what it means to be human.
