I have to tell you, of my three children, my oldest son Grayson is the sweetest of them all. I never have to say to him "Grayson, don't hit your brother/sister". He's a good kid, and as you might be able to guess, I am quite proud of him. At the end of school last year, Grayson's teacher came up to me and asked for a minute of my time. I was shocked when he told me that he suspected Grayson had some signs of autism. Quite honestly, it shook me to the very core of my being. So, needless to say, being all upset and flustered, I went to the dayspa that my wife and I own and told her what the teacher had said. We decided that the best thing to do was research and get Grayson a complete mental and physical going-over. We found out that his motor skills are sub-par and that he had a severe form of Asberger's Syndrome, which not only has the physical complications, but social as well. We also found out that Grayson is in the top .25% as far as IQ and vocabulary, but in the bottom .5% socially. So, we are working on enhancing his social skills- he is now in 7th grade and played football this year (He's 13 and is 5'8" and about 165 pounds, so needless to say, he was a defensive lineman for his team...) he was also elected to his student government association at school. I was really upset with myself for a long time because we hadn't picked up on many of the tell-tale signs of his condition. His motor skill issues were obvious, and I'd always chalked up up to his being a "nerdy, akward kid". I'd shot this image of Grayson a year or so ago, and looking back on it, I find it an amaging illustration of him as a parson. He is shy, yet the kindness within him seems to show through his eyes. I hope you enjoy looking at this as much as I am enjoying posting it and telling you a bit about my son.
