    I have no words as I sit reading this with tears running down my face. The way you express all that is going on in Jack’s life and your life is spot on. As a proud grandma of 5, the youngest is 10 and happens to have autism. The oldest will be leaving for college next week. I can’t help but wonder what things will be like in 8 years when this special kiddo will not be leaving for college. My daughter struggles with all kinds of emotions, just as you do. And she handles every day like a real trooper or should I say real mother. It is what it is and you make the best of it. And I have learned to say he isn’t autistic; he happens to have autism. Big difference. I know that now. He’s a sweetheart who has a beautiful smile, twinkling eyes and will give a kiss. He can also be a stinker who launches any item in sight and then looks at you and says “what did you do?” He’s lightening fast and Houdini has nothing on him when it comes to getting in and out of mischief. But at the end of the day, he is LOVE and that’s what it’s all about.
