Laura and Kevin, love your sweet precious attention devoted hearts. How fortunate and blessed JW and the girls are to have you, exactly YOU. Much love to all, Elizabeth

Sam Richardson

Thank you for sharing your story! It's a hard emotional process deciding what's best for your baby. I completely understand! Sending you hugs sweet friend! PS: you ROCK!!!

Carla Thomas

His story is so identical to Jaxon's. Same struggle with kindergarten... Some good days some not so good. But we continue to fight for him every step of the way. Allen used to call Jaxon's speech Jaxonese because some words were very hard to understand! He is doing great at his school work but the classroom is overwhelming at times. He has a problem with kids being in his space and has trouble not keeping his hands to himself! Thanks for sharing, Mary Lou and I compare notes every time we talk and they seem like they came from the same mold....

Susan Riggs

How courageous you are to share the journey your sweet JW is on. i will be praying for all of you.

Kari Lindbloom-Garner

He is so fortunate to have a mom like you fighting to be his voice. Praying for love and patience to surround your heart.

Koa Woolley

Thank you for sharing your story Laura! You should seriously consider publishing a book; I'm sure you're not alone in this journey. You could title it "When you don't have a label"! I give you and your husband credit for doing all what you do and still manage to expand your interior design career! You're a rock star! JW is a sweet heart and is so incredibly lucky to have you both as his parents. I'm keeping you all in my prayers. Good luck in school JW!

John William is a beautiful blessing. Your family is so strong and so loving I know you will get through this trying time with flying colors!! You are such a wonderful mommy and Kevin is a fantastic daddy. We love your family.!!! JW is such a cute little booger, sounds like he is in the right path. Thankyou for sharing your story, it will help bring comfort to moms and dads and families just like yours . Hang in there my friend ,,,you've got this 👍


Thank you for sharing your story! While reading I kept recalling the quote "always be kind. You never know what someone is going through." I truly had no idea what you all were going through! I will keep you in my prayers! But, somehow I feel certain that with parents like you two, (all your love and commitment) JW will be fine. Hang in there and God bless you all!

Your story is an inspiration! You are a wonderful mom and your son is a blessing.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. -Proverbs 3: 5-6

Martha Boyd

Blessings on you and your family. Praying for all of you. Thanks for sharing about JW.

Miss Garnett

Crying as I read your story. I often tell my children to remember that I feel the same about them as they do their children. Grandparents sometimes feel so helpless. This love of generations is additional support for you and Kevin and your family. You are in our prayers and may God hold you all in the palm of his hand. Always remember you are in my heart and I love you and yours.
