Your article is incredible and the timing is perfect for me. I was just discussing with a friend how autism may be genetic and how I actually have a lot of the symptoms. Oh, and a child with autism. I’ve been wondering for a few months now if perhaps it wasn’t something his father passed on but perhaps we both did.

I’m currently working on an article about my own struggle. I love this piece. Thank you for shining a light on something a lot of people aren’t brave enough to talk about yet. 🖤
