Ethan had just started school, and I was testing some video equipment for a job I was shooting later that night (yes, I did manage to get my camera shake and focus under control before the gig). For those who don’t know, Ethan was diagnosed with ASD when he was 5 years old. His speech development was an area that required a lot of coaching, and this video highlights some of this early on. Raising Ethan was a challenge for us, but like any parents out there raising a child on the Spectrum it became our normal. He is our gift, and he is a constant reminder of how beautiful life really is.
This video is Ethan’s shout out to all the uncles, aunties, grandmas and friends. It takes an entire village.
