Second Chance by Sandra Gerencher is a wonderful and heartwarming story of Ryan, a boy with autism, and his new pet Chance, a Rottweiler German Shepherd mix. With both of them being adopted, they can relate to each other in so many ways, but the most important thing that each one understands is that being adopted means stability and a family, security and acceptance. Being with people who will love you no matter what and hold you in their hearts forever as if you were their own. The tale gives more of a thorough understanding of what going through an adoption is like through the eyes of Ryan and Chance. Each sharing their own experiences. Ryan teaches a lesson that speaks to Chance, explaining to him that no matter how hard the journey was that brought them to their new mother; it was worth it to be loved unconditionally, to be accepted into a home where past does not matter, only the future.
