I was recently shown this video of Christian the Lion. I was completely inspired by what I saw. The best part for me, relates to The Son-Rise Program. The two men who raised the lion were told not to have any hope of him remembering them.
Many times families that I work with are told not to have any hope for their children.
Whenever I hear this, I think….WHY NOT? What is so wrong with having hope? With hope you have nothing to lose. The son-Rise Program re-kindles hope in the parents with children on the Autism Spectrum.
