Keith Millner’s candor

“Life with Neavey” (Summer 2008) was a lovely story and one to which I can very much relate. I have two children with Fragile X Syndrome, a genetic condition that causes autism, low muscle tone, language delays and seizures. My life isn’t as I imagined it would be, though in some ways it is more fulfilling and richer than I had ever dreamed. It’s certainly not easy to describe well in the quick blurbs of the Class Notes each quarter. This article so nicely expressed the love and the challenges of raising special needs children.
