Health knowledge made personal
Birthday: April 6
I am a writer, wife, mother and advocate of three African American boys, 2 of whom happen to have Aspergers. My two Asperger sons are in their adolescent years at ages 12 and 15. My writing is a therapeutic release and an opportunity to look at our family challenges, with humor and grace. It is my hope that my stories educate others about what it's like to live with Aspergers -how it shows up differently in each person, the challenging behaviors, the special gifts, the anxiety, hopes and fears that come along with this diagnosis. I want to help create a world where we look at differences with compassion and humanity -where difference is a gift.
