Erik Weber was only two and half years old when he was diagnosed with autism. Once reaching five years old his mother was told that he would have to be placed in a group home because he would continue to have a cognitive skill level that was much younger as he grew older. However, his mother refused to put him in a group home and endured many challenges to make sure Erik received a life full of hope and happiness.
