I wouldn’t trade my son Edmund, who has a rare chromosomal rearrangement, for any typical kid. Alas, I also count myself quite a bit poorer.


我不会用我的儿子埃德蒙交换其他任何一个孩子,虽然他患有一种罕见的染色体重排。哎,我也清楚自己相当于一个穷人


A recent study in the journal JAMA Pediatric predicted that a child with autism and intellectual disabilities will cost a family almost $2.5 million. My first thought was, “Not surprising.” My second thought was, “Holy crap, what will Edmund’s grand total be?”


 JAMA Pediatric近日一个研究估计,一个低智且有自闭症的孩子要一个家庭花费大概250W美元。我的第一个想法是,“不足为奇”,我第二个想法是“我的天啊,埃德蒙将需要多少钱呢?”



Edmund, the second of my three sons, was diagnosed soon after his birth with a rare chromosomal rearrangement called Cri du Chat syndrome. Edmund is now 4, and is a giggly, sociable, nosy, occasionally impertinent boy. He cannot walk independently—he uses a wheelchair or commando crawls. He requires a feeding tube for nutrition. He is non-verbal. He has far more than his fair share of health problems. Edmund was in the NICU for four months after he was born, and has had seven surgeries—some major and some minor. In short, he is and always will be one expensive little guy.

埃德蒙,在我的三个儿子中排行第二,在他出生后立刻被诊断出患有一种罕见的染色体重排,叫Cri du Chat syndrome埃德蒙现在4岁,是一个傻傻的,有点大男子主义,吵闹的,有时无礼的男孩。他不能独立行走,只能使用轮椅或像突击队员那样攀爬。他需要一条喂食管输送营养。他不会讲话,他有远远多于常人的健康问题。埃德蒙出生后在新生儿重症监护病房待了4个月,做了或重或轻的7个手术。总之,他永远是个昂贵的小家伙。
