One of the things I truly wanted to do when writing Autism Grows Up was encourage moms who are raising children with Autism. So often, they are working very hard behind the scenes to do whatever it takes to help their children communicate and feel happy and safe. (Among a thousand other things.)
This morning this sweet video popped up on my Facebook news feed from The Today Show. It made me cry because it is the very heartbeat of what I want every mom to understand. Even when their child can’t put their thanks into words, I can guarantee they know and appreciate that their mom is always there.
Please take a few minutes and watch and send it to a mom you know needs to hear those words, too.
