It's been a delight to have a special needs child. He never is deceitful, malicious, and always tells the truth. A few weeks ago I found him next to the refrigerator with tears and words repeated, “I’m sorry”. As I noticed the ice cubes that filled the sink, and the container on the counter, I could sense he was frustrated. Poor Max thought he broke the ice maker, which he didn’t. It was back up.

Went to see a musical that my friend was in, and it was spectacular. When we got home, Max had a severe meltdown for the second day in a row. This time, it was because he felt they should have sent the actors home to sleep hours ago; so he could come home and play on the computer. Autism is such an unpredictable day by... day experience; it’s altered my life drastically.
