My son, Isaiah, has autism and fetal alcohol syndrome. (He is adopted so please, no snarky comments.) He has a twin brother named Isaac. When they were younger, we had to wrap them up in sheets or literally have four or five people hold them down to get their blood drawn or even examine them at the doctor's.

We have worked very hard to help them overcome the anxieties that plague them. This video shows a milestone in Isaiah's progress. I am as proud of him here as if he had just graduated from Harvard. It reminds me of when he finally signed a word and he got an award for it at school. My husband and I beamed.

We are SO PROUD of our boy!
