Regarding T: he has a tremendous amount of patience too. As with all of us, he has his impatient moments! But I think about what it must be like to want to communicate something, or need something - and not be able to say it - how incredibly frustrating that must be. It also must feel odd to have people talk about you right in front of you; making decisions for you, discussing what you can't do, or every minor infraction that occurred at school, etc. How much patience must he have - to live in a world not built for him?
So we are patient with each other - as best as we can be.
