My son was diagnosed with autism when he was 3 years old. The lady at the westside regional center went on and on about how my son would probably never be able to talk or feel emotions and all this other stuff. That was so heartbreaking to hear. Thank God she was wrong, my son is now 7 years old and he is talking and is learning about emotions. It has been a long road, but I thank God that my son has improved greatly. Because of my son's condition I have had to buy him products and equipment to help him with his sensory and motor skills. I have not been able to save any money so I am asking for some help to raise money so I can take myself and my son on a much needed vacation. We have never been on vacation and I would like to be able to take my son to hawaii to celebrate how far he has come with his autism. Thank you in advanced for whatever you can donate. It is sincerely appreciated.
