Yes, autism has moments that totally and completely suck ass! Makes a person down right miserable at times with meltdowns. But if my son's autism was gone, so would my son. He would not be who he is. He's beyond brilliant. He NEVER forgets anything. He is very lovable and huggable. If he didn't have autism he probably would have stopped kissing me at 4 like my brother did with my mom, cuz he was too old for that. Every small thing everyone else takes for granted I see as an extra special moment. The first time I heard love you i texted every person in my phone., plastered it all across fb and cm in every single autism group I was in. Most moms with nonasd kids would have maybe posted it as a status update on fb. Not a big deal for thm, those things are going to happen. it's not a guarantee for all of the parents with asd children. My son has taught me son many wonderful things. To rely more on God and not myself, to treasure the small things in life, to be patient, to love 100% unconditionally, to be accepting of things I don't understand , and to show others how to do the same.
ETA: I work. I will get to your replies at sometime. I know last time I didn't respond immediately everyone said it was a troll post.
