    Beautiful story, almost mystical.

    Wow, waiting with grace. As frantic as you are, Carrie, you sure do demonstrate grace.

    Again, your words touch me and tears come into my eyes.
    If I ever have the opportunity to act as the Grace’s owner, I hope I will do it with grace and love.

    Trying to leave for work, but it’s hard to do when tears are rolling down my face. My daughter with autism is also thirteen. She might have more smiles & laughter than Jack, however I similarly worry about her future, and I fret at myself for moments of impatience. Thank you for your raw honesty, and for these moving words. May the two of you continue to blossom with love & grace.

    I have almost tears in my eyes. And also, you have an older son so you know but I have to say it anyways.. in the shadows/in the light parenting. That’s an apt description of parenting any and all the teenagers.

    Carrie, you are an amazing Mom and an unbelievable writer. You are making such a huge difference by putting your feelings into words that so many can identify with.
    Thank you so very much

    Jesus comes to us in many different situations, in ways we do not understand as well as in people we do not know. How typical of him to arrive that day you and Jack needed him and with Grace. As difficult as it is, may we see the day a cure arrives. With Hope, Love and Faith may that day come for Jack, my grandson and all Gods Children. You are truly a wonderful Mother.

    My relatives have a six year old autistic son. My niece and me took him to the park, and he snatched things out of people’s hands before we could stop him. One insensitive man scolded him. He tried to take nuts from a woman, and we stopped him. The woman said she doesn’t mind and handed him some nuts.

    Having Asperger syndrome isn’t at all like having more severe autism. My little relative struggles in life and always will. Hope you’ll always run into such people. They’re out there.
