Autism : When Reality Kicks in
The book is about the love stories of 3 women whose children were diagnosed with autism at different stages of their life and varied experiences that led to the prognoses. Their fathers had different attitudes towards the diagnoses - both positive and negative. The mothers stood firm not dissuading in their roles to work hard and ensure that their children thrived, despite the situation. Majority of the fathers were pessimistic, but one was optimistic and got a positive outcome. This book embarks on addressing and admonishing the reader that love and romance are not enough to sustain any marriage.
