Thanks for your heartfelt article, Jennifer. I’m the grandmother of an autistic child. He’s ten years old, very severe (not speaking or toilet trained) and the house has to be locked up like Fort Knox to keep him from wandering. Please don’t ever berate yourself for any shortcomings. Take pride and joy in the monumental task you’ve been challenged with and your awesome dedication to that task.
