'Temple Grandin': closing scene. Tears - and hope.

I have been 'dying' to post this clip, from the movie 'Temple Grandin'.

I have been waiting for the right time. When my son graduates from pre-school? Or kindy, or... I don't know Year 6... or perhaps high school or university?

Turns out there is no right time. It's now.

Because with each and every Occupational Therapy session [every fortnight], and every weekly playgroup at Learning Links, and several hour-long meetings each month about setting new goals for Rafael, I realise we are inching closer to a day when Raf will stand up and declare himself like this. I don't know how he will do it, I don't know what it'll look like, but I do know one thing: I will be as moved as Julia Ormond [playing Temple Grandin's mother] is:

Watch the clip and you will see why it moves me - no, makes me shed floods of tears - each and every time.
