"I love you Andrew but I hate your autism!" And once again I hear my friend Penny's question from that first session when I said Andrew had been diagnosed with ASD. She said, "And what does that mean?"It means I have a trampoline in my living room.... It means I pray every night that he will sleep so I can.... It means more new activities to do everyday, a new schedule, and the guilt when I don't keep it.... It means not being able to take him out in public without someone staring. It means I'm tired and I have a headache. It means I've lost track of how far he has come and how blessed we are..."My Andrew: Day-to-Day Living with an ASD Child is a heartfelt look into the first eight years of one family's journey to raise their autistic son. Author and mother Wallis Simpson shares from her personal journal the daily struggles and joys of loving a special needs child. Written in a down-to-earth style, My Andrew is a stirring resource for anyone who works with special children and their caregivers.
