Autism doesn’t make him less than you or more than you. It makes him him.
From sushi to Skittles, my kid loves it all.
An insatiable appetite, nonverbal autism, and surprising cat-like agility,

As Nine Inch Nails so eloquently asked, “What have I become?” A parent.
He might not always have someone there to check on his batteries. That’s the whole problem that many special needs parents face.
They’re just extra steps needed to make his practice into perfect.
He doesn’t have to ask, expect, or appreciate. I do it because I love him
Meltdowns are tough on parents, but far worse for people experiencing them firsthand.
It’s my responsibility to take responsibility when it’s my responsibility.
