"It's Not Fair to the Normal Kids." Are You Kidding Me, Lady?

I told her that my son has autism and she responded, "oh, my nephew is autism." Yes, she said it like that -- should have been my first clue.

She remarked that someone had told her she should mourn her daughter and get over it. (That’s my paraphrase.) Now, her daughter didn’t die -- she was born with special needs, so to some, the word “mourn” may seem like an odd one. But when you have a child with special needs, you do mourn. You do....more
