    “Finding Our Way” by Kristi Sakai in an excellent bo

    “Finding Our Way” by Kristi Sakai in an excellent book for parents about raising an Asperger’s child. She offers experiences from her own life and her three (yes three!) Asperger kids with a great sense of humor. Mrs. Sakai answers a lot of questions that parents who have Asperger’s ask themselves about Why did this happened? and Am I a bad parent?. She covers all areas of the family life such as:

    Chapter 1: Who Are You? Tools for Navigating the Inner World of the Asperger Parent

    Chapter 2: Don’t Leave Home Without It! The Asperger’s Parent Survival Kit: Tools for Effective Parenting

    Chapter 3: One Pie, Too Many Slices! Tools for Meeting Everyone’s Needs

    Chapter 4: Reaching Out: Tools for Building a Community of Support

    Chapter 5: A Marriage of Inconvenience: Tools for Building a Relationship with the School

    Chapter 6: Sanctuary: Tools for Creating a Comfortable Home Environment

    I especially liked that Mrs. Sakai talks about the grief period when a parent gets the diagnosis. As she so elegantly states: “Mourning the loss of the dreams you had for your child doesn’t mean you will be frozen in grief. It means you are facing your fears and the significance of what has happened to you and your family before moving on to the next step.”

    While reading the book I felt that Mrs. Sakai was holding my hand, but also making me chuckle and letting me know that everything will be okay. I think it is a must read for all people regardless of whether they have an Asperger child or not. It would definitely help those who don’t have a peek into the world of those who do and maybe be a little more patient and understanding.
