Leaving Normal

Leaving Normal – the journey of a mother and son with autism

Author: Dr Carla Cornelius

When Carla wrote a letter to her son, the day after his birth, she had no idea what her promise of maternal devotion would actually entail. She did not anticipate the diagnosis which was just around the corner, and how her life would be turned upside down; nor did she anticipate how much this baby would captivate her heart, and what a fascinating young man her son would grow up to be.
