My crazy ridiculous non-verbal son (that would be Khalid) finally has an ID necklace, and because I have failed to located a medical-alert vendor in this country, he’s wearing dog tags. And because the chain we hang them on has to be sturdy enough to survive his annoyed attempts to remove it, he’s wearing some seriously chunky-looking bling.

Ah, my lil gangsta…

So Khalid’s tags have his name, his nationality, AUTISTIC written in capital letters, and both HF’s and my phone numbers engraved on them. I must say, he actually looks really cool. I’ll see if I can post a pic.
