Ethan is ten years old. He was diagnosed at age three after a regression of skills at around eighteen months. He has made fantastic accomplishments since then. My favorites are his return of eye contact by age five, finally calling for me by yelling, “Mommy,” at age six, using the potty at age eight, and wearing underwear at age nine.
He is an ornery, sneaky, and inventive boy. He loves to draw, create, build, and learn new things. He has two younger brothers; Ayden, 8, and Gavin, seven, that love to play Minecraft with him and a little sister, Lillian, three, who can bring out his best giggles and his last bit of patience.
Ethan has taught us all the meaning of unconditional love, patience beyond measure, and never ending hope. We are proud to be his parents, and grateful he chose us to be.
