Sorry I am single full time daddy and I need to share the news with someone! :D

My son is 7 years old and has Autism and global development delay, from day one I have always been told by " professionals" that he would never be able to talk and he will never say " daddy" or " I love you".

I was changing my little mans Nappy a Minute ago when suddenly I heard a little voice go " Dada" ... It was MY SON! :D :D ( I admit it I cried like a little baby!)

I am so so happy, so so proud and so excited for the future... I just want to shout it from the roof tops! :D

I knew one day he would prove everyone wrong and today he did!! :D

That's so special! You'll never get tired of hearing his voice. I hope that it's just the beginning of his vocal developmentstar
