Cody is a fastidious little lad. His quirks, his character, his sense of humour define who he is and his autism informs his choices. I don't believe that makes him miserable. I don't see evidence of that accept when he is overwhelmed. But looking around that beach I saw children far far more overwhelmed than he. I saw kids being bawled at, fighting, being ignored. My kids thankfully experience none of that from us....because of their autism. If I was to remove that I believe I would not have raised my children with the patience and the depth of understanding I do now.
Though I wish my children didn't have to be upset and angry. Though I wish I could hear their thoughts and experiences. I don't wish to take away their autism. I realise now that they are just who I wanted them to be in my dreams. But with added specialness. They are unique, funny, mischievous , care free, wild, adventurous and autistic and why would I want them to be anything else?
