Matthew was diagnosed with autism before his second birthday. It was devastating. We had so many questions and there were so few answers. It has been a long journey to get where we are today. Matthew is learning to ride a bike, play the piano, play tennis and speak a foreign language.
Matthew has worked very hard to overcome so many obstacles in his life. Those simple things that come easy to most of us present daily challenges for him. He is truly an inspiration to our family and has taught us so many life lessons. All along we thought we were teaching him when, in fact, he was the one teaching us.
