    Oh WOW! I was thrilled to see Tommy’s story tonight. So much HOPE for aspies and their families. Our Ian is in a christian group home, and I can hardly wait until he is home so I can show him what Tommy has done, and encourage Ian to keep on growing in good character traits and learning boundaries. He is a great guy, and we’re so proud of the progress he’s making.
