A Change Is Gonna Come
A conversation between me and my son, Noah, who has Autism!
Noah: *****Sobbing***** I Hate School
Me: What is the Matter Noah?
Noah: The principal wants me to sit down,
stop cussing, and keep my hands to myself.
Me: Well those are not good things Noah
Noah: I know it, but I can't take it! I don't
want to hear people it hurts my head.
Noah: I don't know I want to be a car rider.
Me: How about we change to the special bus?
they wont talk much on that bus.
Noah: I hate the big bus people make fun of me!
Me: I'm sorry baby! Kids don't understand you like
Noah: I only have 1 friend!
Me: Awesome, Who is that?
Noah: You, Mommy!
Me: ******tears falling from my face******
I'm sooo sorry! I love you!
Change is going to come! It has to for him! Why add this to my blog?
There are parents and children out there who need to read this and explain to their children that one little negative, nasty "he is weird" comment can change a child's impression of themselves and how they view the world! My son can't help that he has Autism but it is our responsibility as citizens of this wonderful world to never make him feel alone and that his mommy is his only friend!
