Dr Dindo Astom and Dr Arlyn Astom are proud parents of five children. Their eldest son Aaron, who is now 20, was diagnosed with autism when he was 3, their youngest twins were also found to have autism a few years ago but they have never wallowed in self-pity or limited themselves in any way. Here’s what you can learn from this family of fighters.
Choose happiness as your primary goal instead of allowing other competing areas to overshadow it. Watching their children enjoy everyday activities was their biggest joy. They could have been disheartened by a lot of things; however, they chose happiness above all.
Happiness and love flourish in the company of others and are important for your health and well-being which is why when the twins turned 7, Dr Dindo & Arlyn Astom took the family overseas. They also made sure to take the kids to church and even though it was tough to manage them, they never gave up and made sure their kids were around people.
We might become too invested in the lives of others and lose track of our journey. Dr Dindo & Arlyn Astom believe that simple things may be less ordinary, but we cannot live our lives envying others.
