Actress Jenny McCarthy, who has written several humorous books on pregnancy, motherhood, and moving on, tackles a more serious topic with her next tome – her son Evan Joseph, 4 1/2, battles autism. Her latest book, Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism, will be out on September 6th. Jenny describes it as ‘a heartbreaking story about a serious health issue.’

Jenny, who runs IndigoMoms.com, is of the belief that Evan is a ‘crystal child,’ and she herself is an ‘adult indigo.’ This belief suggests that ‘indigo/crystal phenomenon is the next step in our evolution as a human species.’ Proponents also suggest that many indigo and crystal children are wrongly diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, and autism. Starchild has more information, for those interested.

Jenny says that, ‘Evan is sensitive to air and water, he’s that hypersensitive,’ so she’s had to adjust her parenting. You can read an essay on the indigo/crystal belief that she wrote in 2006 for Children of The New Earth magazine by clicking here.
