    Tears pouring down my cheeks here in Tennessee…your writing is so beautiful. As a mom of a 16 year old boy, this one touched me down deep (all of your posts touch me). Teenagers are so wonderful and perplexing. I keep reminding myself what I learned in Human Development 101-adolescence is a time of egocentrism, they can’t really help it. But occasionally I’ll see the sensitivity and empathy just like you did in your oldest, and I know my sweet little boy is still in there. Thank you for sharing your heart with all of us, I am blessed so much by your vulnerability.

    I am the grandmother of two handsome wonderful boys. One seventeen and the other fourteen. My seventeen (Zachary) is on the spectrum and struggles with life daily. I read your posts every Mon. and feel I know you. My daughter has a big decision to make as to where we go from here. He is in his senior year of high school. Can he live on his own? Can he drive a car? Can he hold down a job? I am so pleased there is so much more offered these days for the younger children then there was for him. Thank-you once more for sharing your life with all of us. I pray Jack does well in his new school this yr. Zach’s brother has trouble dealing with his brother like Joseph. It does put a burden on them as well as wanting this autism to go away. God has a plan for all his children, we as parents and grandparents need to listen as life opens new doors. God Bless
