Do You See This?

This beautiful boy is autistic.   This beautiful boy doesn't sleep.   This beautiful boy can be loud.  When I moved into this ramshackle duplex, I met my neighbors and discussed my beautiful boy with them.  I told them all about him and asked them to tell me if he was too loud.  Over the past couple of months, as I discovered just how run-down this house is, I checked in with them to make sure he wasn't too loud and they reassured me he was fine until 1:30 last night when they bashed on our adjoining wall so loudly they scared the girls.  I was up all the rest of the night trying to keep him quiet but today I am exhausted and sad.  I don't know what to do.  I am working with my beautiful boy but there is only so much I can do.
