BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) – Jonathan Spiller and Esther Greenspan have a true love story and are using it to inspire others.

The two have been a couple since 2017.  

“I asked him to be my boyfriend and he said yes right away,” Esther said. Jonathan said that’s because she is the woman of his dreams.

They have since co-authored a book about their relationship titled “Special Soulmates: A True Love Story.”

Jonathan said the message of the book is that “it doesn’t matter if people have disabilities, they can have meaningful relationships. You can be in love with someone.”

Jonathan is also a trainer with The Arc of Massachusetts’ Pathways to Friendship program, which explores the benefits of relationships between people with and without disabilities.

“I do presentations. One is called ‘Friendship Matters: Tools and Tips for Building and Maintaining Friendships,’” he said. “I also speak at Boys and Girls Clubs, teach them how to make their recreational programs more inclusive.”

The Arc of Massachusetts is celebrating its 70th year. The non-profit is dedicated to enhancing the lives of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Click here to learn how to donate.
