In His Own World

Day 182 of 365 - In His Own World

Please View Large On Black

 

Most of you have seen a lot of shots of my youngest, Trevor. He Just turned eight and is a typical eight year old boy. I have a couple of shots of Jeffrey in my photo stream as well, but not nearly as many because he is not nearly as easy to get settled for a photograph. Jeffrey is 12 years old and is severely autistic. I saw him at the computer this afternoon, listening with headphones and basically content in his own little world and thought this was the story I wanted to share today. He is a happy little boy who, for the most part, loves to live his life in the land of elmo and infomercial videos on youtube. He will, begrudgingly, come out of that world for some things -- photographs are not high on that list :). We love him dearly. Hopefully someday soon he will allow me to photograph him properly again. For Now I have included a couple of photos I managed to wrestle out of him earlier this year.
