    This was in the July issue of Good Housekeeping if you have it around. The author writes about his brother's family, and particularly pays tribute to his sister-in-law, and their 2 adult sons who have severe autism, one who also has type I diabetes and will only eat soft pretzels and waffles. Both wet the bed - neither will ever be able to live without a caretaker.

    I found this woman's story to be both inspiring and heart wrenching.

    Oh my! What a strong woman! I will remember this story when I need the strength to go own with my own Asperger son.
