My Ausome Child

He is so awesome. He is an amazing, little human being. He is compassionate and loving. Yes, and wise beyond his years. He teaches us everyday. Sometimes there are meltdowns and sometimes there are sensory overloads. But, all the time, yes ALL the time – even in the midst of defying, screaming, crying – etc. – there is a boy, My Boy. A child who I love very much so. A child who deserves every great thing in the world that is beneficial for his being. A child destined for success and greatness while helping others reach their full potential. A child who is noble and string willed. A child who is unique and yet the “same” as the typical children in his age group. A child who is learning respect and the fine way to treat others- as well as all living things. A child who will defy all odds stacked against him. A child on the Autism Spectrum, my child.
It is not about awareness, it is about acceptance. Autism acceptance. That what it IS about. We are aware that autism exists – but we have to accept our children and all others on the spectrum. Give them the benefit of the doubt and never let a diagnosis define who they are. The world is a puzzle and my son is a piece that belongs to it just like every other child.

It is JUST a label. Labels are not good all the time. What happens when we do not like labels on our clothes, for example? We RIP them off!!!
