The Mid has published my story, and you can read it here
It's not an easy read, but here on the other side and years later I know it is a good thing for him, not just the rest of us. Also, it wasn't all bad. Here is a few seconds clip of Jeff and Griffin telling a joke from the year before we placed him, which was a very hard year.

I read your story. Thanks for sharing it. I had a question for you if you don't mind answering it. You mentioned a regret of yours, of your wish that you had put things in motion earlier. Can I ask you how much earlier you had in mind? At what point in Griffin's life did you start to become scared enough as far as safety did you start thinking about having him not live with you? If you would rather talk about that privately I can be reached through my e-mail, email@example.com. I am a father or a boy named Bennett who has a diagnosis of Autism. Turns 10 this year. But everyday is a dance of aggressive behavior of some kind.
