If Dreams Came True is a story very loosely based on a dream Andrew Simpson had when he was ill. In the dream, he thought he had been kidnapped and hidden away. When he woke in the dream, it was many years later, and everything was strange. There had been a war, and now there was a world government. He was in serious condition, but great advances had been made it the medical field, so he was able to be cured.
Once he was able to get around, he searched for his family, found his grandmother, and learned that his father was living on the moon. He and Grandma got together and decided to emigrate to the moon, where they settled down. Andsim became a doctor, grandma ran a crafts store and class, and all was going well. There were adventures on the moon, and new people in their lives, and interesting things happening. Including a Loony Idol contest. Life was full and happy.
But then new worlds were being opened and they wondered about another move.
Christopher Robin Andrew Simpson, born November 30, 1977, youngest of five children. He was born with Cerebral Palsy, but learned to use his feet in place of hands. He completed high school, and lived at home until he was 28, when he moved to a long term care facility in Dunnville, Ontario. Andrew had always been close to his grandmother, and when he was living on his own, he got in touch with her. Over the years they have remained close, staying in contact by computer for the most part. For three years, he lived with grandma, and they did a lot of things together. When they went out shopping, he pointed with his toes to direct her by the route he wanted her to follow. One thing he really enjoyed doing was to tip his toy box over, then scatter the toys with his feet. Of course, some went under furniture, and grandma had to get down on he stomach on the floor with a broom to get them out. That was when Andrew would attack. As fast as he could move, he would scramble over, lift up onto his knees, and flop over grandma's back. Then they would both laugh while she rolled over and got him down on the floor. After they were able to be in touch again, when he moved out on his own, he decided it would be fun to write a story with grandma, who spent a lot of time writing. They wrote a silly tale called Working With My Grandma. It was posted on Andsim's Forum, his blog site. If Dreams Came True is their latest attempt at coauthoring, and they both hope people will enjoy it.
