Carmen Belle White has suffered human tragedy on an epic scale. After an abortion in her late teens, she endured four miscarriages plus the loss of a beautiful little baby son just days after birth. These were her "angels on loan," as she came to call them, but even they are only part of her remarkable story. For more than thirty years, Carmen was trapped in a private hell. No one-her parents, her teachers, least of all herself-understood. Gradually, the truth emerged-thanks to Harry, her autistic son. Harry's life changed instantly and dramatically when, as an infant, he had what should have been a routine MMR injection. It became painfully apparent that Harry was an autistic child. Carmen faced the supreme challenge of raising a boy with learning difficulties and behavioral patterns that were totally alien to those around them. In the process, it slowly dawned on Carmen that she herself had shared many similar sensory issues that would explain her own struggle. In an amazing sequence of events and experiences, Harry became the teacher that his mother had so sadly lacked. His love and wisdom enabled both to discover each other and to take "bonding" to a whole new level. Angels on Loan is an immensely personal story of mutual understanding and love. It is a tale of triumph over mountainous odds and demonstrates beyond doubt that love will heal almost anything if you allow it.
