I was no different from any other mother.
When my little boy, Skyler, was born, I longed for the day he would talk to me. My husband and I dreamed about the first sweet "Mama" or "Dada". But they didn’t come.
At age three, Skyler was diagnosed as autistic, a developmental disability which means he couldn’t talk - wouldn’t talk. I would probably never hear any words from him at all. I wondered how it would feel to hear my child call out for me whenever I heard other children calling their moms.
