I went to a meeting of the Father's Network this morning. It's a group for men who have children with disabilities. I've gone off and on for almost ten years--just after Middle Son was diagnosed. Today was the first time I had been in months. There was a man there who I hadn't met before who has a 4 1/2 year old son with autism. We talked for a while. I saw echos of a lot of things we went through with Middle in as I was watching his child.
I was glad I went.
