Exposing Love to Someone with Aspergers
Much attention is given to parents and children which means adults who have Aspergers may never be diagnosed or be misdiagnosed. Life is hard for these adults because without the proper support they may end up depressed or violent.
But what happens when adults have Aspergers? What kind of life can they lead? Adults with Aspergers can lead a full, productive life but it takes a very special person to help them through it. The person who will stick by them no matter what has to contend to an unconventional life. My uncle has Aspergers and has been married for over thirty years. His wife showers him with unconditional love on a daily basis. My uncle is fortunate to have found someone who loves him so much she would do anything for him.
I wanted to show the world what their world looks like. I wanted people to view life through the eyes of someone who has Aspergers. I also wanted to shed light on what it means to be a parent or spouse of someone who has Aspergers. I wrote Elsa so that others may learn and be inspired. The book is based on true events.
