Autism in Love



Do yourself a favor and spend 4:27 watching this poignant film about autism and relationships. It's the perfect length film, because any longer and I would have been beside myself - this issue is so close to home. Wil mentions daily, if not several times a day, his plans to marry and have kids (triplets, don't forget!).

Just like the mother in the film says, and I'm paraphrasing, I don't know if my son can get married, but I don't want anyone telling me he can't. I need to believe it's possible. In fact, I need to believe that all of his dreams are possible.

So, so powerful, Carrie. Thank you for posting. And you know what? I truly believe that there's a partner for everyone. I hope that Wil's partner is moving toward him in this life right as we speak (or type).
