Watching Courtney with my mom is always beautiful. They spent a lot of time together when Courtney was a baby since she was one of her caregivers while I was at work. But their bond is deeper than that.
Courtney is not the first child with autism my mom fell in love with. In fact, there were probably more than 100 before her. My mom was an autism teacher and one of the best ones out there. Couldn’t be more perfect that when she retired from being an Autism Teacher over 7 years ago right before Courtney was born that she would soon after that become an Autism Grandma.
