Goodreads asked Romy Wyllie:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Romy Wyllie My most recently published book is "Loving Andrew: A Fifty-Two-Year Story of Down Syndrome." The idea for writing this book grew over the period of Andrew's life but really started when he was a small child and we had made the decision to bring him up as a fully involved member of our family. This was in the late 1950 and early 1960s when many parents followed their doctor's advice to place their children in an institution. We had the courage to reject this idea and so, along with a few other families, we became pioneers. We wanted to share our journey to help others cope with similar challenges.
