Performed by Hannah Ehman
Deborah L. Harris takes us on a personal journey in living with Autism from the moment her son is diagnosed at the age of four up until his present age of eighteen. Deborah shares the struggles that she encountered with the developmental disorder that eventually destroyed her marriage; led her into a lonley addiction; and forced her to learn some painful discoveries about herself. The detailed events of the on-going battle she faced in trying to find ways to fight Autism that left her with mixed emotions of anger, frustration, and often time’s depression. The disappointments she encountered with the lack of medical assistance that her insurance were willing to provide and her personal outlook on the future of Autism and what parents with Autistic children should know.
