Military Parents With Special Needs Kids: Who Makes The Real Sacrifice?

Quite the post by Anne Woods, Public Relations Director at Hope for the Warriors on Huffington Post.

"This is the best place for you to live. There is an amazing center here that works with autistic kids."
Encouraging words. No one could have known that these words were the last thing I wanted to hear.
It was 2004 and I was living in Sacramento. My 3-year-old son had just been diagnosed with autism. The MIND Institute at the University of California, Davis was hailed as one of the world's premiere autism research institutes. Everyone I met conveyed the same sentiment -- the MIND Institute could single-handedly heal my son.
