When I set out to write this book, I had no idea that Andy would take over the story. I wanted to include an autistic child as an important character, because I had a brother, who although not autistic, was developmentally disabled. I wanted to make the point in my story that disabled people are more "abled" than disabled, and can accomplish many things and lead happy, productive lives.
But I was going to focus this work on fiction on the romance between Sandy and Tom. Andy would have none of that! He took over from the very beginning of the story and continued dominating it all of the way to his last paragraph. This is his story or at least part of it. It is difficult to predict how he will write the continuing chapters of his life.
I hope that you enjoy these chapters in his life story.
