    I don’t comment often, as I am not directly involved with a child with autism. However, I almost daily observe the seemingly solitary life of a child, and the family, in a similar physical situation, but seemingly without the group support that you have created in your family. Through your weekly postings, I enlarge my understanding and empathy for “my” nearby family, which chooses to remain private. Yet, it isn’t private. I’m reminded when the child is outside, {today, in the early morning mist} and I awaken to hearing his sounds which have yet to be formed into syllables. We both have our morning rituals: as I get up and make coffee, he swings, twisting the rope supports from side to side, dismounts, pounds his little hands on a rock wall, claps, stomps his feet, and repeats. I hope when he runs back inside, the child the family are experiencing the unconditional love that you so eloquently express, both by your actions and in your words.

    I am like Hedrixon. My parents are gone and now as the little sister I am the guardian.
