6. For what it's worth

 

I have a son with autism. Asperger's, to be specific. But I took no chemicals of any kind while pregnant. Indeed, when I broke an ankle at 7 1/2 months, I did without pain relief. Not fun.

Still, he came out with autism.

His younger son is beyond normal. Second son is a social genius, gets along very well with others. The two could not be more different if you planned it that way.

Sometimes autism happens.

Oh, and the autistic older son is one of the most amazing people I have ever known. So is his brother, but maybe that's just the mom speaking.
