This website is dedicated to our son Adam…
Our son Adam was born in June 2003. We also have a daughter named Amanda and I have a daughter named Amber. When my wife was
pregnant we were very ecstatic to learn that we were finally having a baby boy, since this was going to be our last child… When Adam was born
everything was normal, my wife had a natural birth and was released from the hospital on time, and we took our beautiful son home.
When Adam turned one year old, we started noticing that he was not receptive to us calling him, he would just sit in front of the television and
not respond to his name. This worried me and my wife very much, at first we thought Adam had a hearing problem. We took him to a specialist

Adam attends The Howard Haber School in Bronx, NY, and with help from early intervention, speech, language and occupational therapy
through the school he has become more verbal and is now starting to eat solid foods. This is a tremendous step for us.
We would like to thank the wonderful staff and exceptional teachers at the Howard Haber School for their tremendous efforts and patience with
our son Adam.
