In editing Autisable, and having a son with Autism who has challenges speaking, it’s difficult at times to watch children go through life like I did – with a sense of relative normalcy. Maybe it’s because I don’t know if my son will ever graduate school, get married, and enjoy life like the rest of us ‘normal’ people. It’s that lack of knowledge that can pull one into a state of stress and emotions that reach far beyond what the average person has to deal with.
So, this past week I came across an article and video that is rather inspiring – and in many respects provides a sense of hope.
The hope of what may be possible with my own son.
After reading the story – HERE – I found myself in the midst of the struggle this young man’s parents went through. It reminded me that I’m not alone and that there is hope.
With e overwhelming sense of emotions at imagining my own son giving that speech – I cried like a little baby.
(hey men cry….deal with it)
What is the most random thing that has ever made you cry?
