Please Let Me Introduce You To Luke.

Luke is a handsome young man.  Luke is so friendly.  Luke is 19 years old and has autism.  Luke can be violent.  Luke has bipolar. Luke loves his mother.  Luke has hurt his mother physically.  Luke says he is sorry.   Luke loves disney movies.  Luke loves.  Luke’s mother is Alesia.

I hope I can write more about Luke. I have been asked to share of my almost 20 years of wisdom. However, it makes me cry to write about him.  He lives at home with me, my husband, and our youngest son Elijah.  I hope I can tell you stories about him soon.  This is a beginning. Photos taken mostly by me or my husband with a Sony Digital or Panasonic DMC-ZR1 unless otherwise noted:

Luke did not learn to walk until he was past three years old. Here I am taking him to one of his many therapy appointments. Besides Autism, he had Hypotonia.

Luke at school working with his speech therapist this day.

Luke at his special daycare program. He was kicked out for his behavior after a couple of years. You can’t tell from this photo!

Luke  on one of his last vacations he could take since being diagnosed with Bipolar. We flew to Hawaii on this trip. We hope to fly again, but we are always worried we will get kicked off!

Luke has carried this Alligator around with him for years. Thank God Toys R Us still makes them. Luke is getting his head rubbed by my husband. It soothes him.

Luke at his High School. He was in a contained learning center. Alittle over the shoulder action in this photo.

Good Times!

High School graduate photos we had taken by a very patient photographer named Tera!
