Ben Bonaroti age 13
Ben Bonaroti is 13 years old and lives with his family in Gilbert, Az. He enjoys playing soccer, basketball, and hanging out with his friends, but most of all he loves his artwork. Just this past year, the young Picasso made his talent known and was invited to share it at the AutismOne conference. Ben is very funny, loves to make people laugh and with his big heart, picks them up when they are down. He is fondly known by his family as “angel boy” because he has taught them more about life than anybody and how to heal from the inside/out. Today, Ben’s Autism is barely recognizable, is making friends on his own, and enjoys helping other families on this truth-seeking quest. Our family mantra: “Faith~hope~knowledge~recovery”.
