Charlie Update

It's been a while since we've given an update on Charlie. There's been a lot going on with him lately. The long and short of it is that we had Charlie evaluated by a child psychologist and she determined he has autism. Apparently, it is very common for a child with autism to have seizures. It's not news that we wanted but it is good to know what is going on and to have some ideas of the direction we should go with some of his treatments. We are seeing a new pediatrician who deals with a lot of children with autism and we are hoping he will be able to help us. We just keep on trucking with hope and faith that things are going to get better for us and our little boy. Thanks again for all the prayers and support all of you have given us. We couldn't do it without you.

We think of you and keep you in our prayers daily. Charlie is a very lucky boy to have two wonderful parents who love and care for him like you do. If there is ANYTHING we can do, please let us know. In the words of our father... Hang in there little buckaroo.

Seriously, Charlie was sent to the right home. And I have no doubt that you will continue to handle this new development with as much grace as you have thus far. You are amazing!!
