The Bond Between Father and Son is Even More than I Expected
Joel, editor of the blog network Autisable, shares his thoughts on fatherhood.
June 14, 2011
Being a dad of a child with autism has its own set of blessings.
Like many fathers, when the diagnosis was confirmed that our son was on the spectrum, there was a sense of relief – and then a sense of loss. Lost dreams, lost moments that may or may not ever be.
I’ve found that the role of a father is more than I ever imagined, and this is due to learning so much from my son, who, even with so few words, has taught me so much.
