Moments a Mom Can Cherish … During the process of publishing my book about my family’s struggle against autism, I met someone with an autistic child. She found out that my nineteen-year-old son, Jeremy, used to be autistic…had overcome self-stimulatory behavior, caught up with his peers developmentally, and learned to talk and socialize, overall, be a typical kid. I found out later she made a point to watch Jeremy in his school setting and even was involved in a trip out of state that he participated.
Later she said, “If I didn’t know your son’s history, I would never know he used to be autistic.”
Coming from someone who understands autism well, this is a profound statement. Similarly, I received an equally encouraging remark this past summer. Jeremy went to the beach with some friends and family. One of the friends is a clinical psychologist and had only met my son once when he was about four years old. He really liked my son, enjoyed his sense of humor, and was impressed with what a amazing person he has become.
How can it get any better than this? (o:
