Mother Thanks Stranger For Kindness Towards Autistic Daughter on Flight

by Corey Carter

Being a parent of twin 2-year-olds and a 4-year-old, something that runs through my head oftentimes is "NOTHING is easy..." at home. 

Throwing something in the garbage requires me opening the closet (where our garbage can is) and the boys flock to the open door like moths to light.  I have to tell them "no" which usually is followed by some level of crying.

We load the dishwasher.  The boys flock to the open dishwasher like moths to light.   I have to tell them "no" which usually is followed by some level of crying.

 So anyway...you get the idea.  NOTHING is easy.

But actually...it IS.  

I'm thankful to God everyday for my family and I love them more than anything.  It IS hard sometimes.  

I can't imagine how truly HARD it is having a child with special needs, or autism.
