Book - 2007
Rate this:
A father, trying to understand both his autistic son and himself, pens a truthful and heartfelt memoir encompassing their conversations, adventures, struggles, and achievements.
With great love and profound wonder, Halfdan W. Freihow describes his complex relationship with his youngest son, Gabriel, who was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. Though their relationship is sometimes fraught with frustration and misunderstanding, it endures and flourishes with parental pride, and ultimately, unconditional love.
Taking the form of a personal letter, and set against the haunting yet beautiful coastal landscape in which the family lives, Freihow's intimate tale evokes a rich sense of childhood magic. A tender and brutally honest testament to love and the power of family, Dear Gabriel reaches out to all parents as they try to understand and nurture their children, regardless of any obstacles that may stand in their way.
