Ben at 16
Sixteen years ago today, my son, Ben, was born. Ben's a great young man, smart and funny, with a lot of musical talent. He plays a very mean guitar and is a fearless performer.
Ben is autistic but functions on a very high level. He's had his issues, but through a lot of hard work and some fantastic support from the school system and, most importantly, his Mother, Ben has overcome many challenges and is able to lead a normal life. We believe he has a great future ahead of him.
Fortunately, he doesn't read my blog, since this would embarrass him greatly. Perhaps some day he will, though. And he will know then how very proud I am that he's my son.
