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.

The other day Bryce had a kinked neck and asked for a band-aid. I tried to explain that a band-aid wasn’t going to help him but he insisted so I put a band-aid on his neck and it seemed to ease his mind. He associates band-aid’s with owwie’s and boo-boo’s. Sometimes he even asks me to kiss it better because, like most mother’s, that’s something you always said to your kid to make the pain go away, or at least make your child feel better.

It’s crazy because now Bryce may have this idea implanted in his head that whenever he gets hurt, or is in pain, that mommy can fix it with a kiss and a band-aid.

I guess it’s sometimes hard to say things to Bryce to make sure he understands it fully. Is he memorizing what is said like is he associating certain phrases or things with certain meanings and that’s how he knows? Like if he actually knows the alphabet or because of the way the song is sung that it must be the alphabet he is singing. He’s practically on a robotic queue to say “thank you” every time I ask him “what do you say?”.

In the end though, I’ll still kiss away his boo-boo’s and help him mind his manners.

Thanks for reading,
