Autism has effected our family completely. Poor ER is probably having the toughest time as he is the “typical” or highest functioning of our kids. He is very confused by his brothers behaviors, especially Gavin’s.
We have reached a point (once again) where we have to choose between the kids. Gavin’s future is, unfortunately unavoidable. Elliott Richard on the other hand has a very bright future. I know how this sounds and I know how this feels. You can’t comprehend the guilt you feel as a parent having to decide to basically favor one child over another unless you’ve had to do it.
Everyone involved with Gavin has told us that there is no chance of Gavin living a life outside of our house or a group home environment.
