|Here We Go|
My son has autism. It may be that social situations will always remind me of that because he is not wired to think like you or I. When in a room with typical children, his behavior makes him stand out, his differences are highlighted. But who says differences have to be a negative thing? I think differences can be quite beautiful. If CJ ever lets you get close to him, you'll notice a lot of other things that deserve to be highlighted. He loves to sing. Letters, numbers, colors, and shapes are cool to him. He memorizes book and movie lines, and was able to speak those before he had any meaningful speech. He is very upset if his little sister is sad. And he is incredibly sweet and affectionate. Its these kind of wonderful things about him that I should allow to get the highlights.
