The family and friends of Cooper are trying to raise money and support to get the different therapies he needs and would benefit from.

Our sweet Cooper was diagnosed February 10th 2012 with Autism. We had concerns and made a doctor appointment with our pediatrician. Even though we suspected Cooper might have Autism, it was still very hard to hear. I didn't think that I would cry, because I thought I "prepared myself" for the possible diagnoses. When the doctor said he was on the Autism Spectrum, I couldn't hold back the tears and emotion. I felt like Cooper's future flashed before my eyes. He would not play sports, go to prom, drive a car, get married and so on. My precious miracle baby, who was actually a triplet had defied the odds already. He was a preemie and stayed in the NICU for 17 long days. I wasn't allowed to hold him for the first week of his life. But I sure was one proud mommy starring at him in his isolette with tubes and wires coming out in every direction. But literally, after prayer for a few days, I started feeling a peace about the Autism. I was able to see the miracle and not just the disorder. He was truly a angel from heaven and God picked me to be his mother. I felt so honored. I'm so proud of him in so many ways. I'm so excited for him to start his therapies and learn new things most children learn when they are much younger. I cant wait till the day that I hear my baby say "momma". Its as simple as that. I want him to live a happy life. Even if he doesn't play football, or go on dates and so on. My heart is so much more filled with love since February 10th then it ever has been. What a blessing I have been given! I will not ever take my Coop's life for granted. He is just how God made him and wanted him to be. Perfect in my eyes.
