Mohammed Saleh. Man of faith and business

As you may be able to tell, I'm not very good at spelling. I was informed that the way I was spelling Muhammed, was in fact, one in three ways of spelling that word. So I called Muhammed (Mohammed, or Mohammad) and asked him how to spell his name. I didn't write it down, so I forget. But I know it started with the Mo, not the MU. as for the last two letters, I am 99% sure it ends with an Ed, not Ad. And of course, I discovered all of this after making the movie, exporting it, compressing it and then up-loading it here, all of which adds up to about an hour and a half worth of time. I guess I am writing all of this to let you know, that I am an idiot at times. Please ignor the sp mistake (this time) and try to take something from the story. Thanks!

Lewis Caissie

Lewis is a big Leafs fan, and keeps a game schedual next to the t.v. in his room.

Lewis and his hockey card collection, and admiring a nice sunset.

Due to the Autism, Lewis rocks back and forth while sitting or standing.

Lewis bowls with a team made up of other Autistic teenagers, and adults.

Here are eight photos I used for my Multiple Pictures class assignment. For my story I got to know a young man by the name of Lewis Caissie. Lewis, 16, was born to a mother who lived on the streets and was a drug user. After Lewis' birth, his mother kept him on the streets with her for 5 months, before eventually giving him up to an orphanage. When his mother dropped him off at the orphange, Lewis was in rough shape and had a severe case of scabies.
Enter Rick and Dianne Caissie. Two loving pontential parents looking to change a childs life.When they adopted Lewis, they had no clue what was in store for them. The first weekend they had him at home, he got sick. They took him to the hospital and discovered that Lewis had Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and Autism. I followed Lewis and his mother to one of Lewis' weekly bowling games, which is played with a group of Autistic children, and adults. I also got to visit with Lewis at his home, and he showed me around, and I got to know a little bit about him. Lewis is a great young man and I encourage everyone who reads this to get to know someone who they might think to be a little different. You may be suprised to what you can learn from them.
