As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

Tonight we went to Family Bingo Night at Bryce’s school. It was our first time going to this much anticipated outside of school hours event, and Daniel’s first time playing Bingo. The school even had the Canucks vs. Los Angeles game 5 Stanley Cup Play Offs projected on a big screen to keep all the boys entertained.

At one point, closer to the end of the event, just in time for draining all the kids energy for bed, all the children started to run around all the tables and running outside. Bryce was enjoying watching all these kids, and we told him he could join the kids if he wanted to. At that very second he got up and began shadowing all the kids, following them and laughing and running with them. You have no idea how beautiful this sight is. To see Bryce engaging in other children on his own and interacting is such a huge breakthrough from his social difficulties.

Oh and if you’re wondering if we won at Bingo, Daniel and I took turns who was doing the Bingo cards and watching Bryce, and during his turn he won! We came home with a Tim Horton’s travel mug set with a tea collection.

Thanks for reading,
