Five years after being turned away from helping her son collect Easter eggs, Jennifer still hopes the community will become more aware of autism. For Kyle, she wishes happiness and a future as a valuable member of the community.
Although some days become challenges because of Kyle’s autism, Jennifer couldn’t imagine her son any other way.
“I’m proud everyday he wakes up and smiles. I think, if I couldn’t talk and tell you what I wanted to do. If I couldn’t use a utensil. If I couldn’t open a door and I could still get up and function everyday, I’d be pretty proud of myself,” Jennifer said. “I couldn’t do what he does. Him being here is enough to make me proud.”
