    All ready for school :)

    My daughter is starting 2nd grade and my son is starting Kindergarten. My son has a rare chromosome abnormality called Isodicentric Chromosome 15 which causes autistic characteristics, and many developmental delays. This year is bitter sweet for our family, even though my son has came a long way since his diagnosis, their father is n longer with us to see them start their new journey. Their father passed away May 2013 at the age of 27 from an aggressive form of bone cancer. No matter what we have been through, these two always have a smile on their faces and keep our family going.
