When our son, Ethan, was first diagnosed as high functioning Autistic, we were surprisingly relieved. An answer to his behavior issues and super silly personality was just what we needed. We started on an adventure of therapies, special doctors, IEP meetings, teacher meetings, fun summer camps and meeting new people all around town that we could relate to.
I met Samuel’s mother, Suzanna, at Ethan’s school. Samuel is also on the Autism Spectrum and extremely fun spirited and super smart.. just like Ethan. I’m thinking that is why Ethan and Samuel get along so very well. They’ll even tell you, they’re best friends!
We had such a blast roaming around Rock City Gardens in Chattanooga, TN to get some awesome photo of Samuel and his dog, Flash. Flash is from Michigan. He’s from a non-profit organization called Paws with a Cause. They provide service dogs for all types of people. We are actually on the waiting list, as well!
Enjoy Samuel’s fun personality shining through these images and leave him and Suzanna some love in the comments!
