A friend of mine posted this on Facebook and I thought it was perfectly said and asked to share.
Today is April 2. It is also Autism Awareness Day. Of course since Miss Wow came into my life, this has become a significant day for our whole family. I won’t state stats at you. I won’t reiterate what is autism. I will simply say the following few things:
This picture is a face of Autism. And it is the most awesome face I have ever seen.
I love my kid. Simply because she is my world and cause she is an amazing personality.
Anyone who choses not to accept her or others like her, will be missing out on all their wonderfulness. That is sad for them.
This kid will rule the world. Or least the space she is in I have no doubt.
She will continue to be happy, healthy and whole - and that is all that truly matters.
(And if you hurt her in any way, you will understand the term "Mama Bear" in a whole new way.)
