As a young mother faces the challenge of finding help for her son, she learns that there is a support system out there to assist. With each milestone her son faces, she is there to encourage and support him. Her hard work pays off … when he is in school … when he has a job … when he has his own family … and when health issues occur for her. This inspiring story is for both children and adults who would like a little reminder that with special needs or without special needs … one can learn to say … I love you … anyway!
