Autism In Trinidad Jungle - Here With Me
I don't know why this isn't more popular. This video talks about a couple that sold everything to build a home in the middle of the jungle to live with their low functioning daughter so that she can be happy.
Notice how he said that he used to cross the street when he saw those 'kinds' of people, it was his fear and his fear became a reality that he had to embrace and love. That is how living with autism is... It changes you, alters you, until you are no longer the same person you used to be.
That's special and its good that he can own up and be honest about how he felt before and now. I hope they enjoy while they have health but also leave things in place for her when they go on to the next life.
That is an amazing thing to do for your child. This is a man, more men should look at this and learn that they do not have to run from their responsibility as a father.
Amazing story of truth and sacrifice. Maybe he chose to do this out of guilt for the way he felt before? He seemed very nervous - the way he was constantly with a cigarette in his mouth.
Where did this come from? I mean who produced it and is it part of a bigger documentary or is it just a short film? It was very well produced, it should be shown on TV so people can be more aware of what autism is all about.
They real brave to live in the forest like that. If I lived like that I would protect my interest and not make a video about it specially with a special needs child to protect.
