In a Van Down by the River

And Other Adventures of a Born Again Aspie
  • By Dana Longpre
This is the adventurous story of Dana Longpre who's life began at her Grandma's house. At three years old Dana and her sister moved with their mom and her girlfriend across town. After eight years of living in this lesbian relationship, Dana's mother broke up with her girlfriend, and then got back together with Dana's biological father. Unfortunately he had many destructive habits, including drugs. Then her family left everything she'd ever known to travel across the country in a van all the way to Alaska to homestead with her family. After living in a campground for three months and finally moving into a tiny travel trailer with no heat or plumbing, the anger and abuse of her father became too much. It was at this point Dana and her sister were moved into the foster care system. Dana moved eleven times in three and a half years, which included two hospitals and a group home. During this difficult journey Dana found hope and healing in Jesus Christ, but as she matured through her adult years, she discovered that the pains of her life were overshadowed by something that always made her "different." Here ability to blend in with social settings masked it for many years, but after her son came into the world "different" she began to put the puzzle together. "Different" soon became Asperger's Syndrome (autism) for her son, and later she realized, for herself. This is Dana's story of pain, hope, healing, and discovery.
