I'm sure Olive IS happiest being with those who want to learn from her - people who want to connect with her, who care about her. I even think that EVERYONE wants & needs these same things. This is what's great about life: if we pay attention, we are always learning.

I'm not sure if I can post on here but I love reading your Olive stories. I am proud to have been touched by her. She makes more impact in the world than she realizes. Looking forward to reading the book. Hope all is well with you.



I have absolutely no doubt that she understood and felt the enormous love.


Maria, are you Magical Realism Maria?

Jen, deep sigh. I wish she could learn more, and comprehend more, and speak more, too. I'm so sorry about the vomiting, etc. And yet, what beautiful letters.

Oh, dearie me.


This touched my soul as a teacher and a mother. You have an incredible ability to capture emotion in words, Jen. And a book? The world could really, truly use some lessons from Olive <3

Observing Olive has taught me far more than I could ever teach her. She knows more than I do so has me at a disadvantage.


Olive hears and knows in ways we can only dream of. Thank you for your words. Keep writing.
