Benji is one of many autistic kids who overcome the challenges that come with ASD. 2017 was an especially big year because Benji had his Bar Mitzvah ceremony. While Debby offered a low-key celebration, Benji asked her, “I have climbed some seriously big mountains, don’t you think I deserve a traditional Bar Mitzvah?” He then went on to impress a room of 250 people in leading the service entirely by himself.

Debby writes, “So maybe if you are told that your child will never be able to speak, learn or socialize, think of Benji and have hope.” Benji has even taken over writing the blog himself.
