My autistic son Luke never ceases to amaze me. This fun photo of him sitting in his favorite rocking chair creates a look as if he does not have a care in the world.
I often think about the impact autism has on our medical and governmental communities including, but not limited to social workers, physical therapists, special ed teachers, speciality physicians , behavior therapists, and social security experts. As I focus on the twenty six years I have vested in my gorgeous son and his journey, I vastly underestimated how much would go into all that we have aspired for Luke. Looking back, it is hard to think about all those years, but know this it was an honor for me as Luke’s mom to give him my best and find all the resources I did.
