My son had a big heart.
He had the biggest heart of all my kids.
He was the first one to be born with autism.
But my wife and I had a hard time telling him to stop crying.
We thought it would help him when he cried, but I didn’t know if it would work.
He cried all the time.
We couldn’t figure out how to calm him down.
We tried every technique we could think of to help him, but it never worked.
Then, one day, he asked me what I wanted him to eat for breakfast.
I told him that I wanted to eat him.
He looked at me and his eyes lit up, and he said, “Mommy wants to go to Disneyland.”
I said, No!
Mommy wants Disneyland!
He went crazy.
That was when we realized we didn’t have to be afraid to do what was right for our son.
That is how we were able to help my son get the right diagnosis, the right treatment, and the right help.
