Kids don’t need words. They just need love.
From sushi to Skittles, my kid loves it all.
This is the first time they are seeing him.
An insatiable appetite, nonverbal autism, and surprising cat-like agility,
I went from difficult denial to overwhelming acceptance.
It’s offensive, but not offensive, but incredibly offensive, but innocent.
Under-promise and overdeliver.
It’s my duty to make him feel heard, even if he never says a single word.
What if autism doesn’t make him a super hero doctor like they say on TV?
He has to know that I believe in him.
