Dedicated to Autism and Family

No one knows how he feels, unable to speak, he can only rely on his eyes to share what lies beneath. Hot topic on the news and in hospitals, Mommie wonders,"why him", Daddy says, "I can't win" and the story begins. Controversy and disbelief, dreams deferred and no relief. Research incomplete. The world shatters and no one exists beyond right now. Stomping and frustration maximized silence to loud. No words yet creativity at its best, spiritual connection observed while attempting to rest. An angel, a catalyst for change, limited but potential so far out of range, tears crawl. "NO MOMMIE, ITS NOT YOUR FAULT!" Donations, sacrifices and education, prayer and communication, with those who have overcome the devastation. Autism, is not a fatal condition. Is is an opportunity to have faith in God's position. Only special people can change the world.

Loving this write, Doreen! I had worked with autistic childen, they're loveable and super intelligent! "creativity at its best"; "frustrated" when they aren't being challenged, or misunderstood. Unable to communicate takes them to a world of their own. I'm sure if we could enter there, we'd be overwhelmed by its pureness and intensity. Thanks so much for sharing! Mikki
