I sat down to my computer this morning and woke it up. On the screen was an article that Christi had been reading. It was about special clothes for kids with autism. I read the first sentence and stopped. I contemplated. And then I figured it sounded pretty plausible:
"A study found that mothers of kids with autism have stress levels compared to those of combat soldiers."
An interesting thought. The stress level that goes along with caring for a child with autism really is off the charts. And the moms often bear the brunt of the workload. Thanks, Christi, for always taking such good care of Elli. For always sending her to school with her hair done up beautifully. For working so hard to teach her the things she is capable of learning. I love both of you.
