Autism and The Boy

Blog 134
I love autism because it has changed me and made me one hundred times the person I was before my boy was gifted to my life. I accept and love autism because I accept that my boy is who he is meant to be, he is made exactly as he was intended to be made and the journey we are both on is about helping to strengthen his weaknesses and sharing his radiance.

I don’t believe he is a mistake. I don’t believe he is in need of a cure. I don’t believe he is missing any pieces. You may not agree with me and that’s okay because, for me and my boy, this is our autism, our journey, and I can only speak for the footprints he and I have walked in. I understand if you don’t see your journey the way we do. For me, I would not go back and change it if I could.

My boy is such a gift and a blessing to our lives and his community and I would not change a thing. I am not sure who he will be “when he grows up” but it will be brilliant no matter how close to or far from perfection he may or may not be ♥. He will be perfectly himself and that will be enough. Autism is just as beautiful as we let it be. Sparkle On, my friends ♥
