Autism doesn’t make my son the best boy in the world. The fact that he’s mine makes him the best boy in the world.
When it comes to meetings like this, it’s about helping my child. I’m here for him.
Stress over the uncertainty that I would have to encounter was actually the most stressful and uncertain times of all.
I don’t want to live my life angry and, just because I have kids, it doesn’t mean I have to.
Yeah. He’s not gonna look. You can just take it.
I’m ready for anything. I’m not excited about it. I’m not looking to have long talks about it. But I am prepared for it.
The scariest part was never about what he would or wouldn’t do.
One day, maybe he’ll be able to tell me, “Yo. Put me down.”
Forever. No thought. Not even a question. All real parents would say the same.
My non-verbal son’s skill set stretches far beyond what any one person sees. It’s my job, as his advocate, to accept that.
