I work for a website called Next Avenue. Today, they shared a story titled, “What Will Happen to Adult Children with Autism?”
Check out the article. It highlights a new film called Life, Animated that sheds light on the realities that families like ours face.
I sobbed at my desk like a little baby. When the doctor says…Let me tell you about autism. And some of the kids never talk again.
I feel that in my heart. I feel it in my stomach. When the mom says:
“I’m just going to hold you so tight and love you so much that whatever is going on will go away.”
I’ve felt that desperation. I begged God to fix him. I begged my mom to fix him. I begged Cooper to fix himself.
It’s hard for me to even watch the video. But do it. Watch it. It’s really quite wonderful.
