You are a brave guy. It must be hard to raise kids with special needs at this time. Only perfection matters now.

It is not easy...not that I am Brave...but that I am His Father and I will defend him and his rights as a Human Being....My Faith as a Christian tells me that God doesn't make Mistakes...and Everyone has a purpose in Life...my son is no different...most people have no idea have Prevalent Autism is in our society today...there are many forms of Autism and those who fall under the"Autism Spectrum" and no 2 individuals with Autism are the same...If you are someone who has Healthy, Normal Children...be Thankful...but to those of us with Special Needs Children...Be Respectful, and try to be Understanding when you see someone's whose child is having a "meltdown"...it is not all about how they are being raised...sometimes they just can't help the way they act or the way they are...No one is Perfect and even "Normal" people have issues, if they would be Honest to admit it....God Trusted my Son to me, and it is my job to be there for him and do the best that I can...
