As men we are wired to “fix” things. As fathers we are wired to protect our children. This is our nature. But autism is neither something that can be fixed nor something we can protect our children from – instead it is messy, complicated, hard, frustrating. And so as fathers we lose faith in ourselves.
But I am here to tell you tonight, no matter how lost you may feel, no matter how overwhelmed by the process you may be, there IS a way that you can help, there IS a way that you can make an impact, not only for your child but for all of our children.
~ Luau last night at the Autism Speaks Greater Boston Kickoff
I was so proud last night watching my husband at the podium sounding the rallying cry to autism fathers everywhere.
I am so proud of all that he does every single day to make this world a better place for our daughter.
Please read and watch his speech — HERE –.
Love you, babe. You done good.
