    He Is An Awesome Dude!

    It bothers me sometimes that he feels like his "disabilities" make him unlovable.  I know I love him and others do too.  He is super cool, super sexy and super wonderful.  I am glad we finally became friends.

    My 13 year old son is high functioning.

    He was diagnosed when he was 4, but we knew before that. It just took that long for the doctors to catch on. He's the sweetest boy- so innocent still. I love his tender, loving personality. His smile makes my entire day. It's not easy with his sensory sensitivities, though...

    Maybe that is I love him so much. He is the first boy I had loved. I haven't realised it until I moved away from home when I got a job. Sometimes I feel like there is no use to this meaningless life. But when I think of my brother, I know that is not true because my brother...

    My best friend Andre has autism

    and he is the most amazing person I know. We walk everyday together in gym and we have the best conversations. But it's always hard when the other kids pick on him or mess with him just because he has autism. He's a person not a disability!
