Guilt and Uncertainty of Autism
DOTHAN, AL -- Rhonda Kelley’s twin boys were 5 years old before they said “momma.”

The boys are now 11 years old. A single parent, Kelley has dealt with her share of nasty looks and comments from other people who can’t understand her sons’ behavior and blamed it on lazy parenting or spoiled children.
“You almost get tired of apologizing for autism,” she said.
