A wonderful story

We don't see these stories much in the newspaper here so we relish them when they're published. It's a snippet about a woman (and man) raising a son with asperger's syndrome, which is similar to autism. I loved it now you can, too.

Eileen Jacobs, 43, won't say the word aloud. She whispers it like it's contagious -- Asperger's. Asperger's syndrome is a developmental disorder similar to autism.

"I know I will have to tell him one day," she said during a recent interview at her Hampton Park home. "But right now, I just tell him he is special. He is so incredible. His mind, always thinking. Such a beautiful and amazing mind he has."
