I've been a bad blogger.
It's been a week since I posted.
and what a week it has been.
Friday's Foto is hosted by the lovely Ms. Deborah. Just click on the photo album above to visit Ms. Deb and see more Friday's Favorite Family Photos.
Me and my monkeys.
This photo was taken about 6 months ago, on my son's 15'th birthday.
His name is Dylan.
He is my hero.
You see, when Dylan was almost 4, he was diagnosed with Autism.
He didn't speak, and hadn't reached many milestones, that a 4 year old should reach.
His doctors told me that he may never learn to do anything but dress himself and brush his teeth.
Not on my watch.
I'll spare you the details of everything we went through, but I will tell you this:
Not only is he talking now, he is brilliant. If you met him, you would never know he was diagnosed with Autism. He is in all regular classes, and not only is he passing, he could teach his History class.
my baby had to have oral surgery.
7 teeth removed, and surgery on 5 more.
Yesterday, was a rough day, for my little man.
Late last night, through swollen lips, he told me how grateful he is, that I am his Mom.
No Dylan, ... I am the lucky one.

my 89 year old Grandmother fell last night,
and I have to get her to the doctor.
I will tell you how I've come to have an attitude of gratitude.
Through all of his struggles, his strength amazes me.
His big, big heart. He is the kindest person I know.
Through him, I have found the meaning of life.
He has taught me to be a better person.
I have so much to be grateful for.
Beginning with him.
And he is my Hero.
