What Kind Of World Do We Want?

11 Nov

This video was created by Alex as a gift for Alphonse’s 14th birthday last November 3. We previewed this video to relatives on our family celebration last Sunday, November 9. Alex worked over this after classes, scanning old pictures, writing and rewriting the text, and threading them to become a story. I hope you like this as much as we do. My boys make me very proud.

    Oh goodness, na-affect din ako. Even from when they were very young you can tell that there’s so much love between the two brothers, and the family as well. Tell Alex he did awesomely.
    xoxo

    Dear Alphonse and Alex’s Mom,
    I was led to your site when I did a search on ‘How do I minister to Mom who has autistic children’. I was almost in tears when I watched this video with your autistic boys because I am reminded of my friend’s autistic boys.

    My friend is a strong woman, physically and emotionally. She is not blaming God for her circumstances but my heart breaks whenever I see her situation. You have similar cheerful spirit as her.

    Your latest article of how your husband pampered you with gifts after gifts warms my heart (in a good way) as well.

    Thanks for sharing….
