Autism Breakthrough Moment!!

There are moments in life that take your breath away, and this was surely one of them. Our Tony wrote a surprise speech for his Bestman toast at his big brother’s wedding this past weekend. He was Bestman #1 and his younger brother was Bestman #2 (at least in his eyes). It was Tony’s way of being present at this important life event. Tony was able to wear a tuxedo and be there for pictures before the wedding.

Even though my husband and I watched this video quite a few times before the wedding, our emotions overcame us. And when our guests of 250+ people roared at the end of this toast and gave Tony a standing ovation, that is when we truly fell apart. Not a dry eye in the house, I guess, including the staff at our venue. Please take the time to watch this heartfelt message! ‪#‎autism‬‪#‎autismawareness‬

And many thanks to his PCA for making this possible, Rachel Aiken and her sister Tara Hemmelgarn! ‪#‎blessedbeyondmeasure‬
