This book is a sequel to The Color Red, a mother’s account of her head-long plunge into the world of autism. Believing strongly in the need for research, funding, and—most of all—connecting with others who are traveling this bewildering path or, as she describes a certain milestone, figuratively scaling Mt. Everest, Julie Jurgens-Shimek speaks to the hearts of all who live with autism. Autism Is a Four Letter Word- Love reflects not only Michael’s growth but also the myriad adjustments—well made—by his immediate and extended family, how all have moved from chaos to order. Writing her account of this journey is Julie’s way of reaching beyond her world into the worlds of parents, teachers, politicians, counselors, and more to plead her case, Michael’s case, all autistics’ cases for proper care and compassion. Julie doesn’t just talk the talk— she walks the walk—and invites you to join her as she introduces “Mike Shimek,” regales you with a heart-warming account of where an autistic would wash custard cups, admonishes you to keep close tabs on presumably trustworthy professionals, testifies compassionately for safety devices, answers FAQs, counsels the bewildered, describes her personal transformation, and honors her mother—her "rock"—with space for a grandmother’s chapter. In The Color Red, we saw fear and bewilderment but through the chaos, unconditional love. In this book, we see that same unconditional love, embellished with courage, faith, determination, stubbornness, stamina, and trust. This is a must read if you or a loved one is dealing with autism. The message is strong and will help carry you the distance.
