Content

Open a book, slip into the comfy seat of a movie theatre, turn on your favourite show or play your favourite video game and you will be transported to another world where you can escape from the day to day stresses of being human. 
However, once that story or game has ended, you will slip back into the day to day grind of the real world.
Imagine being stuck in the world of make believe 24 hours a day, 7 days a week because the outside world is too confusing and painful.
This is how the real world feels like for Christian Traverse.
Inside you will be introduced to the world of one extraordinary boy, who at first glance, you will not find anything unusual about his sandy blond hair, his big, deep blue eyes, or even the long, dark lashes that would be the envy of any woman.
You will not be taken aback by his crooked grin or the bubbly personality that can make just about anyone instantly fall in love with him.
In fact, unless you know what to look for, you are not likely to notice anything different about him at all, but he is different.
This world we live in is confusing, overwhelming and painful because he has a condition known as autism.

  •     This is a short but poignant account of what it is like to be the mother of an autistic child. I rate this as a brave and honest non-fiction book from Tina Traverse, better known as an author of vampire fiction.
  •     This is a short, true story, written by a mother. It is an honest explanation of some gritty experiences, and the difficulties faced bringing up a child who has behavioural problems. The family face professionals, who initially do not identify the real, underlying issues. Finally, however, the truth is discovered. Christian is diagnosed with Autism and gets help. I wish the writer well in the journey that Christian is now taking. From personal experience, though not Autism, I can empathise with this story, as well as the difficulties getting to the truth and consequently the relevant support. On the basis that this is written from the heart and is a moving little story, I rate this book 5*!
  •     Forever, Christian by Tina Traverse is the most profound, heartfelt outpouring of desperation and love you could ever expect to read. Just forget the autism for a moment and just soak in every mother's daily toil looking after a difficult child. Then imagine multiplying those difficulties megafold and each and every day, week, month, year you are dragged into a pit of misery with no way out.And do the doctors help you - of course they do, as they off-handedly diagnose nothing worse than hyper-activity or purely normal reaction to a child growing up.Then after 9 years of this torment a school teacher diagnoses your child with Autism, a not uncommon malady that all doctors should be aware of. By now every mother would be screaming mad with the futility of how the medical profession are so indifferent to the plight of the not so well to do. That school teacher could teach every doctor a thing or too about humility.This reader is in awe of Tina's journey with her beautiful Christian, how they have grown from desperation to hope to fulfilment. All it took was some common sense from someone looking in rather than looking out.This FIVE STAR true life drama is a must read for every mother, whether they have an Autistic child or not, as Tina's book will inspire them to see what a gift they have in their children.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
