    What an incredible breakthrough!!! I am so proud of you and for you! These children are amazing and just need the right environment and the right person to bring them out of their inner world – Julian is so lucky that that person is you!! Hugs and Kisses to both of you!!!!

    We’ve had a few autistic children mainstreamed in our school – it is so rewarding to observe or be part of their development. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be as a parent at times, but also how wonderful.

    I have been a foster parent for special needs children 7 years this June. And the kids always suprise me by doing things the drs and their biologicals(family) say they can’t! Jules will be * in June, and he just said his first word!

    Beautiful pick for an absolutely beautiful moment! I agree with Gem Chick ~ not everyone could do the work you do with children such as these ~ KUDOS out to you and the rest of your family! :-)

    I went back and looked at the pick, too, and guess what — I never commented on it! Guess I got so caught up in the moment that I forgot — LOL! It’s still beautiful, both the pick and the fact that Jules spoke. Jill is right about God working in mysterious ways. :-)
