Autism and Love

I have twin girls who both have Autism. They are high functioning. They were diagnosed at age 3. They have had countless hours of Speech, Occupational, and Physical Therapy. They are now in 11th grade and are straight “A” students for their level. They have come really far since being diagnosed. In 6th grade our one daughter met a boy who is also Autistic. A friendship started and at 8th grade graduation, he asked her to be his girlfriend. She of course said yes, and boom; they were dating. Now it’s coming up on 3 years and their love for each other is stronger then ever. They are in separate high schools but we get them together every weekend, and they FaceTime each other 2 or 3 times a day plus text each other. They have dreams of getting married someday. I hope it comes true for them. It truly is a wonderful love story that both sets of parents support.
