Into the World

a photograph by Sonja Bingen

Our youngest grandson, Joey, is autistic. His mother, Sonja, and father, Bill, have patience, grace, and courage in abundance. As a result Joey has discovered fun.

  8. A beautiful photo of a beautiful child, and blessing to your daughter and her husband , blessings that come with a huge effort attached reap huge rewards. Autistic children live in a different realm to us we need to make the effort to break through to them. It is always worth it. I have worked with a few autistic children in the past and I have a nephew who has Asperger’s syndrome which though different also has the person moved into another realm.blessings to you all. xx

  9. What a sweet little boy – this photo made me smile. May he find FUN, and may FUN find him – more and more often. You have such a wonderful family – Joey is lucky to have you all for parents – and grandparents!
