This doesn't even say enough about how I feel about you. I tried to keep it simple but you are like an angel on earth. You have helped me more than you will ever know. I love you. :)

Autumn has a gift with words and her books express that, everything she writes and says comes straight from her heart. I have been so blessed and able to heal by knowing and working with Autumn.

Thanks for all your prayer support for so many. Our Special Speaker, Autumn Ater, is doing very well with her book and website; Please do not forget to pass on her information if you know someone who has lost a child. This book is phenomenal....I think it is better than the first...very powerful with ALOT of good clinical information as well as helpful suggestions from others who have experienced loss! Be blessed!

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted by God. II Corinthians 1:3 and 4

I wanted to thank you for taking the time out to speak to us tonight for REACT. You absolutely touched my heart!! Thank you for sharing your story. I'm almost finished the first book already, can't wait to start reading the 2nd! I know there is a reason for everything and there is a reason I was able to get off work in time for the meeting tonight. It was wonderful meeting you! Thanks again.

I am so proud of you and your accomplishment! Your second book is phenomenal and very powerful. I love it. You did an excellent job. Very professional and enriching. I wish that a mother's love could somehow be accurately expressed to our children so they would know just how much we love them. God, I believe, picks certain people to be the parents of a special needs child. You are very special, very loving and very gifted. The best kind of mother for Robert.
Congratulations on your book. I enjoyed reading it.

Autumn is a woman whose heart is sensitive to helping women grieve because she is a grieving mom. She is passionate about this ministry and has a heart for God and His work. Wonderfully powerful grief book.

My dear friend and CEO of A Hole In My Heart Ministries, Autumn Ater, has just released her second book regarding child loss. The first book was her personal experience and the second book is the educational part of surviving and coping after child loss....and guess what?! Autumn has put me in her new book! If you know someone who has lost a child or any loved one, this second book is ideal! OR, if you have someone in your life who is grieving a loss and you are not sure how to respond, this book will help you to understand and how to communicate with your grieving loved ones. Lots of love! ♥ I love the cover art too! WOW! I'm soooo excited for you, Autumn!

I sing praises for Autumn and A Hole in My Heart Ministry and her writing of this book...for reaching out to the bereaved and offering programs of comfort, support and hope. We need more programs like this throughout the world to be present and faith based to reach out to our communities.

Autumn is a caring, warm individual who is a blessing to all she comes in contact with. Through her book and A Hole in My Heart Ministry she has founded and developed a nurturing, safe environment through which a mother who has lost a child to death can express her never ending love and continued connection to and with that child. Having dealt with the loss of a child herself, Autumn walks alongside that mother while she lives with and processes the excruciating pain and ache of missing that relationship and touch of that child who has passed to the other realm of living with the Father of us all. I praise God that he has directed Autumn Ater in this endeavor to "go forth" with HIS healing touch through "A Hole in My Heart Ministry"...and that she serves as a willing vessel for HIM in what he has directed her to do.

Autumn Ater speaks from years of personal experience, endurance and triumph. Autumn's reflections on life will certainly uplift and benefit anyone they touch.

I have known Autumn (Robert's mommy) for several years. We met as newly bereaved parents, both of us seeking guidance and support. As we continued on our grief journeys, Autumn had a vision of a memorial garden. Her determination and prayers resulted in the dedication of the garden in 2011. Autumn's ministry A Hole in My Heart reaches out to other bereaved mothers from all walks of life. Autumn has also authored two books dealing with her struggles as a bereaved mother. She seeks to provide support and counsel to those in need of comfort.

Autumn is sharp, intelligent, caring, responsible, loyal and does great work throughout the DFW area. Her presentation and loving approach in helping people is phenomenal. Many lives have been touched through her testimony of healing from a broken heart of losing a wonderful child. What I love about Autumn is she could have went home and grieved to death, but she took a stand in the midst of her pain, heartaches and brokenness and reached out to help help other parents who have lost children as well! Autumn is a great and resourceful person!
