I don't know if you are aware but May is Autism Awareness Month (they used to have a week but now it's a month) so in honour of that I would like to dedicate this particular post to my beautiful son Brandon.
I have a poem that a really good friend of mine found for me (thanks Susy) that I would like to share......
A meeting was held quite far from earth; It's time again for another birth. Said the angel to the Lord above, "A special child needs much love. His progress may be very slow; accomplishments, he may not show, and he'll require extra care from all the folks he'll meet down there. He may not laugh or play; his thoughts may seem quite far away. In many ways he won't adapt and he'll be know as handicapped. So let's be careful where he's sent for we want his life to be content. Please, Lord find the parents who will do this special job for you. They may not realise right away; this leading role they have to play. But with this child sent from above, comes stronger faith and richer love," and soon they will know the privilege given in caring for their gift from Heaven. For their precious charge so meek and mild is Heaven's own very special child.
We are so very proud of our beautiful boy, and even though there may be times where I feel like throwing my hands up in the air and saying " I give up" I never will.
Thanks for getting all emotional with me. XX
