    • Thank you for sharing Maryclark.  It was so touching and I feel so said for those angels.  Though they have impairment, their smiles just steal my hearts.  I hope there will be cure and early intervention soon (but not to the extreme of abortion).  Much love.

    • Thanks for watching it Chinadoll.  I just love that little girl in the video.  Autism is only getting worse.  

      I taught a little boy with autism and had him two years.  It’s amazing what they have to go through in life.

    • Yes I know.  My old neighbor had a boy that was with autism.  He was on a wheelchair, couldn’t talk, couldn’t eat (she blended everything and just shuffled that in).  The parents had to turn him several times a night.  He attended special school.  However, when he grew to be 12 or 13, his organs were all twisted because of the deformation of the spine.  Shortly after they moved away, they told me he passed.  It was hard on the parents - they felt relieved yet they grieved so hard.

    • that broke my heart. I am already pissed at insurance companies, but this tops it all. How dare they not cover the cost to help these babies.  

      Time to take a stand!!

    • I too have a niece with autism. She’s had a rough time at school due to her speech impediment. It makes me angry to think of how far she’s come and kids still tease her.
