Thanks for sharing your story. My son was born at 28 weeks, and has grown to an adult (turn 18 recently) but it has been with its challenges too. He is on the spectrum, and does not really "fit in" to society, which has been super hard as a parent so your post really resonated with me. It has certainly softened me as a human and made me more aware that we need to build a kinder, more inclusive society.

I understand the softening completely, for years I built a wall around myself and now, well they say children change you and that's absolutely true.
I can't imagine the complexity of having a teenager just yet (I don't want to 😳) but I can understand that challenge, especially now, at home. Thank you Ricardo, an all around great guy by the way
