There are many heartbreaking moments in this beautifully written book,Letter to Louis,by Alison White,but the first comes before it even the devotion to her son Louis,the author Alison White says how she wanted to write it so that people would understand disability and caring,but also,“To be totally honest,I wanted to write something that would make people consider being Louis’ friends”.Beneath that simple plea(恳求) lies the great fear of so many parents who nurse a severely disabled child through to adulthood:“What will happen when I’m gone。” Instead of giving a vivid account of the fear and anxieties that accompany long-term caring,she just tells us what it’s like,and it is equally admirable,uplifting and terrifying.
As a society,we are fond of praising short-term heroism:the soldier or firefighter,bravery containable within a single uncomfortable truth that Letter to Louis lays bare is that the heroism of long-term toughness,the daily caring over many years,is neither great nor times,with two other children to care for and Louis waking five times a night,still undiagnosed and in constant pain,White feels simple despair.“I picture the cliff.I picture jumping holding you tight in my arms,falling and falling through the air.”
Although there are moments of joy—when Louis first speaks,manages to walk a little—White offers no comforting platitudes(陈词滥调).“My destiny has been realisation hits me full force in the stomach.I don’t want this destiny.” Very soon,you come to admire White’s courage not only in raising a child with a disability but in resisting the temptation to hit one or two of the many she encounters along the way:a Clarks shoe shop assistant who refuses to sell Louis,a wheelchair user,a pair of shoes because he can’t walk across the room for her to check the fit,and an unhelpful occupational therapist who won’t authorise the toileting equipment that he needs,insisting he has to learn to wipe his own bottom,even though it is a physical impossibility for him.
It is shocking to learn that at Louis’ most disabled,after a disastrous foot operation,the family are only entitled to two hours’ help a ary care only comes,eventually,when they are close to one point,Louis has five different social workers in eight months—and then,unbelievably,faces the overnight withdrawal of all temporary care when he reaches his 18th birthday.
On the other hand,White explains the difference that the support of family and friends and small acts of kindness from strangers can she takes Louis on a special day trip to London because he wants to travel on the tube,Transport for London staff take it upon themselves to radio ahead to each other to make sure there is always someone to help them at each station he wants to in a while,a therapist or doctor actually listens to White’s knowledge and expertise regarding her son’s condition.
Eventually,though,the long-term consequences of constant lack of sleep and caring begin to take effect.A slightly mysterious chapter towards the end of the book sees the author disappearing to Edinburgh to walk and sit in cafes:it’s never stated clearly whether this is for work or because she has had a breakdown or a combination of the wonder is only that it has taken so long.
This chapter is just one of the half-told stories in this book;the author is mindful of the need to protect the privacy of her husband,although it is clear their marriage has come close to a breaking point many times,as anybody would,and that of her other two h it all is a cold 
anger that any decent-minded reader will share towards a society that fails to understand that unless carers are properly cared for by the rest of us,it all falls apart.
Above all,this book is a plea for understanding,for the rest of society to pause a while when they encounter someone like Louis or his huge difference a kindly word or helpful act can make—and the destruction a thoughtless act can cause—cannot be book is an essential read for anyone who has ever complained about their taxes going to pay for disability services;it should be legally required reading for anyone in the medical profession or anyone with the power to decide cuts to those rest of us should read it for an acute insight into how lucky we are.
