Not being able to connect with your child is probably the biggest challenge for any parent of an autistic kid. Even when he was a baby Joey didn’t want to hold hands with his mom and wasn’t able to make any kind of connection with another human being. However there is someone who managed to penetrate his inner walls, someone who is not human at all.
From the moment Roxy saw Joey, it was like they were best friends. It’s as if she understood what he needed and bonded with him in a way no one could.
