Teri Summers owns and operates the Last Chance flowershop and is the single mom of a special needs boy, Aiden. Dr. Tom Crawford is the new “doc” in this small town where residents are wary of “newcomers”. This was a very sweet short story of a single mom and her special needs son Aiden. The story is interwoven with three different perspectives, Teri, Tom and Aiden and this gives the reader different perspectives on what parenting a child on the spectrum could look like.
I would love to see more happy stories featuring special needs kids. Truly heartwarming.
