My son, Alex. Part 2. He did it!

Well, what else can I say about this kid?  He did it!  He gave Autism another black eye.  Alex walked across the stage last night to receive his diploma.  But this is just another chapter in the long novel of his journey.  In August, a new chapter begins and a new set of challenges.  But for now, we celebrate this major milestone.  It's always great to see those moments when he knows he did it.  That extra spark in his eye.  That extra spring in his step.  Just plain awesome!

Congrats Alex and to the whole Donaldson crew! Everything is possible with enough determination and a loving & supporting family. Looks like Alex has no shortage in either!
