BALTIMORE - April is Autism Awareness month and when talking about the disorder many focus on the kids, treatments, and research to find a reason and maybe a cure. That means sometimes the parents are forgotten about.
Monday on Good Morning Maryland @ 9, former Oriole BJ Surhoff talked about being a father with a child with autism. He especially talked about the challenges for him and his wife with his busy work schedule at the time his son was diagnosed.
