This blog was born in french during autumn 2003 and is now progressively being translated in your language.
New articles will therefore appear on a regular basis.
... my apologies to the people who hadn't understood this yet, all articles on this website are created and written by myself (his dad).
Lou is currently unable to do it,, just like he is to this day unable to grasp the concept of a "computer", "internet", or to focus for a long period of time on a conversation. Only time will tell us if we manage to integrate him completely in the world in which he lives.

Thank you to the "Roi Baudoin" foundation ( "Parcours hors pistes" ). The new design, hosting and translations were partially made possible by their financial support.
Many thanks to Marco Pappalardo et Laetitia Bouet for the translation.

Daddy and mommy kept asking her to be more gentle and to warn me before approaching me. They told her I was different, that I couldn't see. And then there was my behavior, which Eva could tell was different from other babies'. I wouldn't look at her when she talked to me. So she started yelling in my hears to attract my attention. My parents would step in :
