    Today I sat here today watching The Talk Show, I started crying and just could not stop. They as you said were tears of Hope just listening to the journey you and your husband took and are taking. My grandson has Autism and was enrolled in public school last year, they were not prepared for him and so he was moved to a school for Autism and he seems to be moving along, he still doesn’t speak one of my prayers to hear him say anything. Hearing your son give his exceptence speech today brought joy as well as hope. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
