My fiance's daughter has severe autism and fragile x. I never new that even existed til i met britteny. She is 16 years old, but is kinda like a big version of a 6 year old. She bounces and rocks constantly, she wears diapers, she makes noises of all kinds constantly. She mimics and repeats people around her. When you talk to her she repeats what you say. She gets angry and very loud and ocasionally bites when extremely angry. My fiance has gotten legal custody of her 2 years ago along with her 2 siblngs due to the failure of her mother and her poor choices in life. I myself have 3 children and had no clue about autism or fragile x. But i have learned a lot over the past few years. Patience I have always had. But britt is pure innocence. She is a sweetheart. I believe she wanted love from her mother but didn't receive it. Which now she receives at all times. But one thing my fiance dreams of is having just one conversation with his daughter without her just repeating what he says. He was told that will never happen. I wish somehow or someway it was possible.
