It is easy to get frustrated with Max. On the outside, he looks so incredibly normal. He is a gorgeous child, with a smile that wins over everyone he meets. The disparity between his physical appearance and the reality of his diagnosis is jarring. The difference between him and Cameron makes me shake my head. Most of all, the not knowing what he is thinking, and trying to fathom the frustration he must feel being unable to fully communicate with us makes me so very sad. I wonder if he will ever be able to fully express the things going on in his brain? It's the hope and the belief that this is possible that keeps me going. I just pray this happens sooner rather than later.
