Autism isn't all bad...sometimes your 16 year old
will hold your hand! :)

  2. Oh muh gosh. This is way too cute. It feels like I won the lottery when Clee does something this sweet. Autism really makes me appreciate the little things, that's for sure.

  4. Awe, isn't that a nice feeling? My daughter is 15 and still holds my hand when we walk anywhere. My son doesn't want to be touched, no hugs, no kisses, no hand holding. It's a rare occasion when he offers up a hug on his own and it feels like the sea has parted when he does!

  7. It put a smile on my face when my sweet 16 year old would hold my hand. At 26 he still gives me the best bear hugs.

    We must all enjoy the moments!

  12. Hi Betsy,

    I can relate to your photo. At 27, there are many times when J.W. will hold my hand. That is a gift.

    Thank you for stopping by. I am so proud of Jeff and so appreciate the sacrifices his family have made.
    Being able to talk with him on skype was the best gift ever.

    Big hugs,
    Barb
