Prepare to fall in love with Courtney and her gorgeous babes, Nell, and Lew.

Six years ago I was utterly devastated when my son was diagnosed with autism. However, the initial feelings of despair were soon displaced by anger and frustration. The doctors ascribed the diagnosis to genetic causes, although no genetic testing had been conducted. They cautioned me that recovery was not a possible outcome and that hours upon hours of behavioral and occupational therapy was essentially the extent of treatment options. The traditional medical community – the doctors I was counting on to help my son – were at a complete loss on how to improve my son’s health.
