"One in Ten Thousand" is a captivating story that details the life, trials, and challenges of Lee Ruth, an autistic individual, as seen through the eyes of his mother, his advocate, champion, and caregiver. Vulnerable, real, and compelling, this book focuses on the struggles, adversity, perseverance, faith, and love, that have been hallmarks of his journey. Lee's story is heartwarming and hopeful, and is meant to inspire and encourage other mothers and caregivers who live with similar circumstances.

As a child, Lee struggled. When he was diagnosed with autism in 1976 at the age of three, the rate of autism was one in ten thousand children. Today, that number is one in fifty-four. Throughout the book, Linda Ruth details the adversity and struggle of his early years and his callous diagnosis. This is a must-read for all who have a loved one with disabilities. In these pages, you will embark on a four-decade-long journey of a normal American family who does everything in their power to support their child despite profound challenges. In the end, there is always hope, and there will always be a better tomorrow.

Linda and her family have advocated for Lee his whole life and she also raised two other sons who have learned and worked beside her for Lee's benefit. She is now retired trying to still advocate for her son. Linda is a first-time author who felt that her son's story needed to be told.
