’26 years ago, he was laid into my arms for the first time. Love settled on me like a weighted blanket. I prayed for his health and happiness with every inch of my heart space.’: Mom says ‘the dreams we dare to dream for our children really do come true’

“Last weekend, we met on the dance floor for our mother-son dance at his wedding. This time when our eyes met, time stopped and his entire childhood flashed before me—every milestone and precious memory rose to the surface of my heart, slaying me to the core. Just yesterday, I was rocking him to sleep.”

‘I looked down with tears in my eyes as I absorbed my son’s kicks. Suddenly, I felt a hand on my shoulder. ‘How can I help?’: Special needs mom details ‘unbelievable’ act of kindness

“He dropped to the ground, kicking. I saw people staring. Some averted their eyes, some scurried away as fast as they could to avoid the mom and her 9-year-old autistic son struggling. ‘I need to get him out. And fast.’ She stood over me, shielding me. She stood tall with me, shoulder to shoulder, and supported me.”
