What Remains

Singer/song writer Jamie Manning has an album of songs called "What Remains" that tells the stories of parents raising children with autism. You can find out more about it and hear song clips here.

Warning - these songs might make you cry. They are heartfelt and beautiful. I was particularly moved by his version of "The Water Is Wide". When I took my son to Music Together classes, we used to sing this song and it always gave me a lump in my throat. I think it has special meaning for parents of a special needs child. Manning has also added his own extra lyrics to his version.
