I discovered StoryCorps.com recently and found many inspirational stories about how people cope with serious illness.
StoryCorps collects and records oral interviews, and some, like this one, are put to animation but with the real voices, which I find to be a fascinating technique.
This is a very touching conversation between a mom and her 12 year old son who has Asperger’s syndrome.
I’m so impressed by the mom’s tenderness and loving honesty as well as the boy’s genuine effort to understand who he is and why.
Have you ever had a conversation like this with one of your children?
