A father's sentiments on Autism
Matty and his family
Emily cries for her son and hopes he gets better real soon
Dedicated to my son
The life we live is based on so many factors and influences that shape us and help form our views, opinions and approach to how we live our life and how we conduct ourselves.
I find writing is a very important outlet and it helps me stay focused and directed in my life and it helps me to realize what is most important. Having a son on the autistic spectrum I try to always be there to help him and guide him properly. It seems that sometimes we get caught up in our busy lives that we on occasion lose sight of our true priorities. Having a special needs son does require a great deal of empathy and sensitivity on my part. It also requires a lot of patience and the ability to apportion my time so I am listening to him and providing him with assurance and helping to build his self esteem.
It is my dream that my son will find the inner strength to challenge himself to be his very best and the wisdom to know that he is special and very gifted and that he can do anything he sets his mind to. All those special times spent with very special people in his life hopefully will help him realize how much he is loved and cared for and that he is always our number one priority.
It is my sincere hope that I will always have the privilege of being there for my son and that he will always know that he can count on my wife and I throughout his life.
It is my wish that my son will grow up and have every opportunity he deserves and that he will always know he has great potential and ability and can live a life of great promise and wonder. I want my son to know he does not have to feel alone and different. I want him to realize how great a friend he can be and how very special he truly is.
I pray for my son that things will get a little bit easier for him each and everyday and that he should never get discouraged. He should know that he has us in his life and that we will always be by his side.
I wish to share a piece I wrote on my blog titled:

There is nothing like the feeling of skiing down the slopes with the rush of wind against your face as the light of the sun permeates the winter sky resonating a glow that showcases the picturesque snow covered mountain...
Writing comes from within and is essential in expressing ourselves and sharing.
Life through a child's eye's is the most precious way to live and that is how I wish to envision the world, through a child's eyes.
