Always Leave Them Laughing
Maddie Candell, a middle-aged, single woman, is the mother to JC, a young man who has autism. He is severely involved and displays aggressive behaviors along with a very limited ability to take care of himself. He lives at home with Maddie, and her life follows a very strict set of routines that totally revolve around JC. Maddie insists on being completely self-sufficient and refuses to ask anyone for assistance.
But one day, Maddie encounters a very serious personal situation. This occurrence causes her to evaluate her life choices. She begins to question whether her decision to be independent of others was the right thing to do. In addition, she realizes that she has important questions that she must answer. As she journeys down this path of self-discovery, a deeper life purpose emerges. She sees that she has no choice but to follow this road. It's not an easy one, and there are naysayers along the way, but she realizes there is no other option for her to take.
