    Dearest Carrie,
    You,Joe and your children are close to my heart. Thank you. Oh, and I cry a lot. Pretty much every time I talk about my girl, especially to a “new” person who has never met her before. Or a new doctor. Or when she smiles at me. It’s been a long hard journey. She was 5 before a correct diagnosis was discovered, rare Angelman Syndrome, but many similarities to the Autism Spectrum, and other gene disorders. She’s now 36, and a real joy to my life. God bless you, Joe, and your entire family, and all our unique kids. Scott

    Carrie, this is the best one ever. My dad was a crier, too, strong but tender-hearted. He’s been gone for many years. I’m 70 now, and still, I am grateful that my daddy let his tears show when he was sad. It made all the difference to us kids.

    Carrie, not only do you take phenomenal pictures through a camera lens, you write a phenomenal picture each week. That photo looks like Joe and his clones! I was sharing our diagnosis story with someone yesterday and recalled to her when the therapist asked if we would be surprised to learn if our daughter was on the spectrum … I remember thinking no, I wouldn’t be surprised. And now that we know, how do we fix it. LOL! We don’t, we fix us and our expectations. P.S. It’s my husband who gets twisted with the gd breadcrumbs.
