His mom was so passionate that her son's disorder was caused by vaccines given during and after her pregnancy. The challenging factor was trying to not come so emotionally attached. I saw a determined mother, who just wanted the best life for her son and didn't want to see him treated any differently. I think of them often.
Who is your favorite national correspondent?
