Every year, I tell myself I want to write something very profound in regards to Autism and how it has affected my life. But every year I fall short. How do you put something so delicate into words? How do I express the depth of my soul this has touched? I cannot relate to what these parents go through nor can I relate to what these kids must feel. I am learning but yet struggle to articulate what I think I understand.
What I know for sure is that I wish for these parents to find the answers they seek. I wish for these kids to express to the world all their joy and hurts in a language that is universal. I wish for the world to welcome their choice of expression. I wish for increased awareness every single day of the year.
