So far on Season 5 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, we've gotten a glimpse at how much Jacqueline Laurita's life has changed since her son, Nicholas, was diagnosed with Autism. Despite her frustration, however, Jacqueline's optimism shines through above all else and it's been inspiring watching her journey.

The mama recently spoke with Life & Style, where she shared her hopes for Nick's future.

"We don’t know what the future holds for Nicholas, but we will make sure that we give him all the tools he needs now to make his life easier for him in the future!" she gushed.

Really, that's all that any parent can hope to do for their child. Now that we see how devoted both Jacqueline and Chris are to helping Nicholas, we know he will grow up to be a wonderful young man.

Are you impressed with Jacqueline's commitment to her son? Share your feelings in the comments below.
