What does autism mean? How does it change the quality of life for the individual? How does it impact the family? What sacrifices are made of a family who tries to understand, love, and support their loved one while dealing with physical and mental challenges day by day?
Many people are unfamiliar with how this mysterious, debilitating illness affects families and communities. However, one thing I have found through personal experience is that love and patience bonds families as they continue to search for ways to cope and to sustain the family. Autism affects each one of us in different ways.
