Learning to Ride a Bicycle and Much More

From Huffington Post's Marynell Henry, mother of an autistic son.

As a parent of a child with special needs, I have often found myself in that painful place of not experiencing the pride and sheer elation of watching my child reach one of life's many milestones with effortless ease.
Remember when you first learned to ride a bike? Do you remember that moment when you realized that the person supporting the back of your bike had let go and you were riding on your very own? I do. I remember that moment as if it were yesterday. After all the hard work, the scraped knees, the falls, I had accomplished this fabulous feat and soon would be able to venture out to places on my own.
