Here are some 5-star reviews:
An evocative, fascinating look at life and love through the journey the author takes raising her autistic daughter, ‘Jules’ for the past 20 years. The ups and downs over the years experienced by Grace, Julianna, and the whole support team behind the scenes reveals a process of healing that is as spiritual as it is mystical. Children of Autumn – Autism Here on Purpose is a must read for parents with children on the autism spectrum to truly understand why Grace now refers to Autism as Awe*tis* (th)em!
As a hyper-rational sceptic, I came to this book (in a sense of duty to someone i love) fully prepared to give it up as soon as the trippy-dippy stuff went beyond the pale. So it is greatly to the author’s credit that this never happened, and though there is much in “Children of Autumn” for my skeptical mind to question, there is also something shining through this story even brighter than the laser-beam of reason.
This light is clearly the spirit of author Grace Kohn herself -itself a reflection of some light from above that she is merely channelling, as i suppose she would have it- but it is in any case a light both warm enough not to offend the likes of me, and yet strong enough to illuminate what must be considered essential truth for anyone staggering under the burden of care for one of these “special” children (airquotes to indicate very the patronizing attitude we most need to overcome).
So <spoiler alert> the upshot for me is in the challenge posed by this author’s outlandish premise: What if these autistic children are not the deficient drag-anchors we may feel them to be, but rather beings from another dimension, here to facilitate our own elevation to higher levels of consciousness? If that were true, then what would you do?
Indeed! Well… One answer would be to reexamine every aspect of your life in that light, throw out everything not directly supportive of making this journey the entire purpose of your life, and open yourself up to the possibility of everything that it might entail. That would seem to have been the way of Grace Kohn, and though it took her to some places i’d have to call off-track for me, i do appreciate the way she presents these many modalities as tools that you can take or leave as you may or may not find them useful. So long as you take what you do with “the attitude of gratitude,” that could be the spoonful of sugar that makes it all go down well in the end.
In the final analysis: Is it true, this premise of beings from another dimension? Who knows? Does that really matter? I think that what matters is where such a belief can take you, in the end… And where it took Grace and her daughter is to a place that is so clearly better where they would surely have gone, had Grace NOT been guided at every turn by this extraordinary belief, one cannot help but be inspired by this story.
