from the beginning of Part 2: "Let us go back to the hospital on the day after Jessica was discharged. On that day a woman brought her son to the hospital for a routine checkup. The boy had dark brown hair and blue eyes. He liked to whistle and to hear the music of Ludwig Van Beethoven. He was twelve years old and stayed close to his mother's side at all times. The boy's name was Sean Patton, and he was autistic. His mother was taking him to get his hearing checked. The doctors told her that it was just that he did not pay attention, but she would hear none of it. Ever since the moment she had found out about his autism she had been in denial. She had always believed that he would snap out of it and become like everyone else. But in truth he was not like everyone else. Most people believe autism is a form of retardation. If it is, then it is only in one's ability to deal with emotions. That is what makes them autistic. They cannot deal with any emotions. In truth people with autism have been known to be quite smart. The ability to do mathematical equations in their head that only computers could do is a shining example of the potential locked away by the cruel twist of fate that was his condition."
