Powerful and insightful. Your writing helps the reader to understand the world of an autistic person.
Absolutely wonderful. My heart broke at the beginning, and the ending was so satisfying. Thank you for writing this.
This is a must read for anyone who has any connection to autistic children. My stepdaughter's son is 12 now, austistic and living in a group home. I don't think we understand what they go through - those with autism and the families of .. thank you for sharing.
To my knowlege, I have never been around an autistic child. This would help any reader to understand what they face. Good writing.
Nice job! Kudos! I like your work.
Well done. A strong voice for those who don't always have one.
This touched me deeply as I have a nephew who is High Functioning Autistic, and a niece (his sister) who has Asperger's syndrome, which is very similar. Thankyou for sharing this. I think it was very well written and gives an insight into how the mind of an autistic child works.
What a beautifully heart-breaking story. I believe yours should have placed above mine. Thank you for sharing.
I loved this, and what a beautiful tribute to your friend. Congrats, Tim!
I just got back to reading last week's winning entries, and I'm so glad that I read this one. I have worked with autistic children, and your portrayal is, I believe, accurate and insightful. Great job!
