    And I want to talk to my daughter. Autism stands between you. It always will. In my case, Angelman syndrome stands between us, and it always will, She can understand me somewhat, to what degree, I know not. Her only form of communication is by gesture, smiles, laughs and pushing away. I will hear her voice for the first time when we meet in heaven. And yet she has been the most wonderful blessing God has ever given me. I celebrate her 38th birthday today, though she does not understand it.

    Whenever I feel that all too well known feeling of sadness about our son, my husband, gently, reminds me that he is on a different path. It’s hard though. He is our only child. I see, on a daily basis, of what he is excluded from. Yet, I have never loved anyone more. Autism is such a double-edged sword. Great post, as always. Would you mind sharing what new medication Jack is on that you say is helping?
