A fellow blogger, Allison, at WomanBloom send me this essay "Post partum Blues Plus 20: A Voice of Autism," written by Claire Luna." Claire writes about raising her son with Asperger's Syndrome, with the perspective gained from twenty years down the road. I think you will find her story interesting and perhaps a bit familiar.
Claire's essay is one of many in The Voices of Autism, an anthology published by LaChance publishing. This publisher is connected to the non-profit organization The Healing Project, which is devoted to supporting persons with chronic illness and their caregivers. The Healing Project web site is a good starting point for caregivers of all kinds, including those in the special sandwich generation.
