One Fall Day

Today I want to introduce you to Ismail.  I met his mother some years ago on a parenting messageboard.  I think we had a buddy group for moms of kids with autism and that's where we first ran into each other on the world wide web.  She knows what my life is like as I do hers, in so many ways that you can never understand unless you lead this life.  We've kept in touch over the years and she posted this picture this past fall of her son. I remember coming back to it over and over again because it was so beautiful.   I am not often moved to do things like this, but this time, it almost felt like a compulsion. I had to do something with this picture.  And so I made this page for Ismail, and for his mother.  So that on the bad days, she can look up and remember the good days, and maybe the bad days won't be so bad.  Enough said, here is Shaz's beautiful son.
