Asperger's Syndrome

For some time I new the younger step grandson had some type of mental disability. I kept talking to my daughter about talking her fiance (PW) into getting his son checked out. PW kept saying that it was up to his mother, as she was the one with the custodial rights. I won't get into all that. Any way, I noticed that CW was getting worse. He was having more and more problems. It's frustrating being a grand parent that loves and cares about kids watch this happen.

Thankfully his mother realized she needed to get him some help. He saw a specialist today and they found out that he has Asperger's syndrome. It's a combination of Autism and ADHD. You can go here and read about it. The doctor is having a specialist come in and have him tested for genetic disorders as well. So I'm asking for pray for this poor little guy who is struggling through life, not able to comprehend much of anything. Had been held back in kindergarten, and I have a feeling the same is going to happen in 1st grade this year, as he has gotten to where he won't do his homework.

Please pray that the Lord will guide his parents to do the right things, to get him the help he needs so he can lead a half way decent life. That they will get their lives together so he can as well. It really is an ugly situation. He loves the Lord sooo much. It's a blessing. His birth parents do not believe. So this creates problems as well. I pray they come to terms and accept Christ and help their son. I pray that they become mature adults and realize what is happening in this childs life. He needs stability.

Also, if there is anyone out there that can lead me to people, or you are a person I can talk to that has knowledge of this syndrome, would you get in touch, as I would like to learn what I can be doing to help him along. He's a good kid when he's not having serious problems. He's a very loving young man. It's heart breaking to see this happening to him. Thank you and God Bless.
