    Thank you for giving me the words to help a mother whose child is on the floor crying. I remember having that happen when my son was two and I had a baby in my arms. it was hard and he did not have autism. People just looked at us.

    If my child was not on ASD, I would be a woman thinking that the child needs have a etiquette education of something. Now with ASD child, I learned there is. Whole new world that I did not see, no, it was there in front of me, but I simply didn’t not acknowledge it. Thanks for writing, now always start with my email on Monday morning. Sometimes, I will cry with you but sometimes, I also laugh with you.
    Have a good 2018

    Unfortunately an offer of help is taken as a judgement that somebody is incapable or doing something wrong. I am very outgoing and willing to help, but people don’t always receive that genuine helpful attitude as it is given. Most people don’t want their space invaded and would rather struggle than agree help is needed.

    The village concept is wonderful, but trust of strangers is so hard these days!

    A new Year with all the challenges you face, may you always know, God is right by your side. It is very hard to feel that when the world seems upside down for Jack. May you keep the faith. Thank you for the good you teach us all. We are blessed to be- able to read the gift of writing that has been given to you. God Bless you and your Family. Love you Jack!
