My younger brother is autistic, so I understand what it’s like having
people think your brother is “weird” or “different”. But you have raised a
wonderful, accepting daughter who sees her brother as just that; her
brother who deserves to be treated as fairly as any other child. Both of
your children are very lucky to have each other as their sibling. Thank you
for sharing your story.

Joanie Faircloth says:

Although I absolutely loved this video and definitely shed a few tears, as
a birth mother who gave up my neuro-typical twins for adoption at their
birth when I was 17, I would really encourage you to not use words like
“rejected” as you did in the video about Archie. I do not know his birth
mother’s story but regardless of that, it is just not a good message to
send to adopted children and it is a slap in the face to women like me who
made the most difficult decision of their lives to give their child(ren) a
better future than we were able to do at the time of their birth. I am now
the 27 year old mother to a severely autistic toddler and still have very
regular contact with my babies placed for adoption. Basically, my little
family and the adoptive parents and my twins are one big family. They know
I am their mother, they call me mommy. They know that I gave them up for
adoption out of love. I wanted those babies so bad, it was so hard, I went
through hell during those 48 hours in the hospital where I had to make my
final decision and I almost changed my mind and kept them. But then I
looked into their eyes and knew that I, a homeless, jobless, broke teen
with no family support, could not give them what they deserved, they
deserved the world, and that is why I made the choice that I did. This
mother’s day, they thanked me for giving them a chance to have 2 amazing
sets of parents (adoptive parents and myself and husband), that meant the
world to me. Again, much respect to you and loved your family’s whole
story, but please be mindful of your language in regards to adoption in the
future :)

Charles Guzman says:

You should not look at evil. When people dislike something it is because
their hearts are dark. Never focus on the dark. Focus only on the light.
Darkness flees from light and of course it ‘dislikes’ it. God bless. Keep
your eyes on Jesus lest you fall to darkness!

Charles Guzman says:

Wow! what an amazing family. Love you guys so much. It’s people like this
that will change the world for Jesus.

Nathalie Weader says:

the most heart touching video ever

B Brit says:

I’m actually a nanny, and I was asked to nanny a 1 =+ 7 month old little
boy and I was apprehensive at first, only because I hadn’t had any special
needs experience. He is such a joy, his parents really put his needs first
and he’s so smart. He knows Baby sign language, and communicates well. He
also religiously takes part in ALL his therapies and everyone around him
works with him continuously. He’s further along cognitively then a lot of
non handicapped babies his age I’ve worked with.
