My son Ryan sang the Finale at School!!

Posted by Jenn on April 6, 2007

My 8 yr old son Ryan suffers from PDD. It’s a form of Autism and in most cases makes your child unable to communicate verbally. Well that really is just part of it and I’m over symplifying it, but for you to understand why it is so amazing that he was the Finale at his school’s spring show you’ll have to know a a little background.

Like many children with PDD Ryan began to speak and one day it was like a light went out. Suddenly my healthy happy child that was learning how to say cat and dad one day was mute the next. It was so hard to convince the doctor’s that something was wrong, he was only 13 months old, so for two years we fought, ran hearing tests, jumped through hoops and finally got him diagnosed. He began early intervention, went to classes to learn how to deal with his issues and then the time came for Kindergarten.

Again we fought and eventually won the war. We managed to get him into one of the best schools in the country for PDD. They have worked with him for three years and he has made great strides. he can speak now and as we learned on Tuesday April 5, 2007 he can apparently sing in front of a crowd as well. i creid and sang every word with him and while this day was by no means as special as the first day he called me MOM, it’s was damn close to it.

 Here are some pictures of the event as well as a small 30 second video.  I wish my husband had gotten more, but the camera was giving him trouble, he dropped it and as you can see we were to far away. In any case I hope you all enjoy is as much as I did. I hope to get a full copy of it to post in the future.

 

 

God Bless!!

Thirteen Things I Love about my Husband

 1. He is my best friend ~ No matter what I say or do he doesn’t judge me, he just loves me.

2. He would give anyone the shirt off his back ~ Seriously if you need help he’d bee there.

3. He’s a great Dad ~ My kids are lucky to have him, he will drop everything for our kids.

4. He’s a good friend ~ He is one of those people that everybody loves.

5. He has a great Sense of humor ~ People always ask me if I spend all my time laughing, I just laugh and say we always have a good chuckle when discussing the bills.

6. He is a hard worker ~ Whether at his job or just on cleaning the house, whatever task he takes on he does it with determination.

7. He rarely yells ~That may sound silly but I tend to be a yeller so he balances me.

8. He has a great smile ~ When he smiles it’s contagious, you can’t help but smile back.

9. He has great hair ~ I mean great hair, like hair a woman would be jealous of and he keep it long. I’m not even sure if he likes it long, but I do, so long it stays.

10. He is a wonderful lover ~ Since I will be spending the rest of my life with him this is a good thing. He always make me feel wanted and desired even after two kids.

11. He thinks I’m beautiful ~ Even after two kids he still tells me I’m attractive. he once even told me that to him I still look the same. Trust me this body is not what it once was, but he loves it and me anyway.

12. He listens when I speak ~ That is so important because well I love to talk and to know he cares and is listening makes me feel loved and respected.

13. He is a great Dad ~ I know I said that before and I could probably find a million more things about him that I love, but this is what I love the most. Our kids are the best thing that we ever did together and he loves them unconditionally. He supports them, helps them and never lets them forget he loves them. Being a Dad who shows love and who spend time with our boys makes him the best person I know.
