"There are days in your life you will never forget. For me, the day was July 23, 1997. That was the day  I was told my 1-year-old son, Mitch, was "definitely delayed, possibly mentally retarded, and probably autistic."

My world was shattered until I realized my little boy hadn't changed at all. I loved him just  as much after the diagnosis of autism as I did before. Someday I believe Mitch will share  his dreams with me. 

In the words of Robert Browning, "A man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for." We intend to keep reaching for the stars!
