Thanks - you and your family are a great inspiration and I'll definately be sharing your thoughts with my friend. As to the airport she thinks its a combination of the over stimulation, crowds, not knowing what to expect, etc. I suggested she not use Boston's airport but a smaller one. I will tell her to call ahead and see what accomodations can be made. He now has a great aide at school who is taking care of him after school also. She is willing to come to the airport to help get him situated. They are going to try for spring break to go to SC to visit his grandmother. He is pretty high functioning, I believe. I think he'd do great once he got past the airport. I keep thinking of the giraffes and how much he loves them. Plus the pool and slide - he is a fish! Anyway, the food at Sanaa looks great. We're going to be at BLT in March, which will be great - but I can't wait to get to Kidani (hopefully Dec.).
