In 2006, my husband and I became the legal guardians to my then 2 year old nephew Dion who had just been diagnosed with Autism. My brother, who was a single father and in the military, was deployed to Iraq and was unable to care for him. Our life as we knew it would change dramatically. We were unprepared, unqualified, and unaware of what raising a child with Autism would entail. But God doesn’t always call those that are qualified but equips and qualifies those that are called. We as a family were called to love, support and provide the best life for Dion whether we felt like it was our responsibility or not. Although not initially, we have come to understand this was part of God’s plan. While it has been difficult beyond words, God has been faithful. We salute Hope for Three that support families like us, who live in the world of Autism. Hope for all is what we need, and like the scriptures say Not only so, but we glory in our sufferings because we know suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character and character hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because Gods love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
