Excerpts from "Where Does My Autistic Son Belong?" (463pp)

An online version is now available on Amazon Kindle at https://amzn.to/348K8Rn. With a weight of 650g, the overseas mailing costs are quite prohibitive. To promote this book, I am offering free excerpts and a couple of audio readings of vivid passages (please see below).

With this book, it is my intent to giv

Empowering Parents for Families of Autistic Loved Ones — Followup of October 12 meeting of A Mother&

This image, taken by Sapna Kewalramani, who made these beautiful cards with Sebastien's paintings and my inscriptions about autism, encapsulates the dedicated love of parents for our autistic loved ones and our wish that our children can find happiness in our world. This was pretty much what my book, Where Does My Autistic Son Belong, was about... Thus, I would like to thank the eight parents who made it to the inaugural gathering of A Mother’s Wish (AMW) Community. Though small in number, we still created an atmosphere buzzing with our collective love for our children and concerns for their current situation and future.
