Tony’s Christmas List

Posted by theothersideofnormal on October 27, 2010 in autism, family |

Not your typical Christmas wish list for your average 17-year-old.   But then again…  we aren’t looking for typical.  Just thrilled that he sat down on his own and made his ‘wish list’.   These are just things that will make him happy – things he can memorize, study, dissect, and explore.  Just some simple DVD’s and […]

Grandpa Gene

Posted by theothersideofnormal on October 11, 2010 in autism, coping skills, family |

I’ve often wondered how Tony would take a death in the family.  My father-in-law passed away on September 21st.  We had watched him suffer for years and we were all prepared… or so we thought.  He had been getting progressively worse.  We talked about what we’d do with Tony in this situation.  We wanted desperately […]
