Talloobi is autistic. And yes he’s probably considered severely autistic. Or what the professionals like to label, a level 3.Does he suffer because of the limitations he has? Yes. Yes sometimes he does. Do we suffer with him? Yes. We suffer with him & for him.But his autism is part of who he is. It’s not ALL that he is, but it’s a big chunk of who my Talloobi is.

You went out quietly one night, so he wouldn't wake up. I heard the door close and waited all night long. Trembling and crying, I prayed. I prayed for strength, as I didn't know if I could face it all alone. How to tell my little boy that daddy wouldn't be coming home any more? He would not be coming back to chase him around the house.Don't worry and most certainly you won't.
