This is the story of a single mother raising an autistic boy from knowledge of conception to adulthood. The book narrates his obstacles, challenges, and triumphs. It discloses his mother's informed and sometimes intuitive decisions about guiding and steering him down an independent and productive life. He has emerged as a notable welder, poet, bodybuilder, personal trainer, and photography model. Although most of the credit goes to him for his persistent determination, I, his mother, would like to believe that I did something right.
