    I just finished reading your book, and I don’t think I’ve ever read a book on autism that resonated quite so deeply with me. The more I read, the more I felt like I was reading a day-by-day description of our experience with my own 8-year-old son (We’ll call him “T”). I’m used to reading accounts of parents with high-functioning autistic children and coming away feeling that our situation is just SO different than what they’re describing. This is literally the first time I’ve read a parent’s story that was almost a mirror image of our own. If B has a twin brother out there, It’s T. A few pages into the book, I was so startled at the similarities that I started making a list of the traits that you described that were things I’ve seen in my own son. I ended up with a list several pages long.

    Your raw honesty, positive attitude, and unconditional love for your son despite the challenges you face on a daily basis (and I know exactly what they are because I’ve lived them myself) inspired me and made me want to try even harder to be the best dad that I can and love my son for what he is, not what he isn’t.

    Thanks for sharing your story, it helped me feel like there are at least a few more natives here with our family on this little island.
