We are nearing the end of 2013 and I have been thinking about the last twelve months and the progress that Nick has made during this time. It has been a productive year and Nick has really made some great strides in all areas. The one thing that stands out the most to me is his resilience. He has been exposed to many different situations and places; and he has taken it all in his stride. He is an uncomplicated kid with a very endearing character. He is also a bit of a screen addict, but then again so are a lot of teens these days ~ well, that is our excuse! :)
The following words and pictures have been copied from my personal facebook page and my Bright Side page. The majority of them are *firsts* for Nick.

Happy 14th Birthday, Nick.
Never in a million years did we think that Nick would ever speak!
His progress in trying to sound out words has been delightful.
Nick made the big time! Thank you Autism World Magazine!
