When I think about that …I have to laugh, so often I’ve felt that way…like an Oxy-moron. How about the time Wyatt was really thirsty, we entered the ‘ Subway’ I approached the counter ,Wyatt darts for the first available drink of an “unknowing-distracted” customer! Oh the look of relief on Wyatt’s parched face! Oh the look of horror,then disgust on the grumpy man’s face! Of course my apologies and explanation spills forth…to a…STONE-WALL. Can you say…AWKWARD?! Fortunately times they are -a-changin!!! More and more the STONES are falling from that WALL…as I’m met with a knowing look, a smile and a nod…when” another “of my speils spills forth! Wyatt is a miracle in this world like all the rest of us …EVEN… if he does randomly steal drinks!!!
My Mission …is to PROMOTE FRIENDSHIP THROUGH COMMON UNDERSTANDING! Alot can be learned from these awesome , amazing PURE PEOPLE and AUTISMHWY.com is on a mission to PROVE THAT ! Linking ourselves in an “Informative Friendship Network” will be the building blocks to understanding. As our extended family members link and learn from each other…to help in spreading our words. When the people of our beautiful communities understand “us” when we are out in it…miracles will abound.
I actually see OUR COMMUNITY as an opportunity for typical people to “step-up” and better themselves. Something we have been lacking as a society in our busy self driven lives. Autism has become so prevalent…I guess I’m thinking it’s time to enjoy us…and just tell people “Hey take the time people to just stop & smell the autism”!!? I smell ROSES!!! In the future we will be needing more and more mentors to help guide our growing population. Assisted living situations will be expanding in all kinds of directions.
Common knowledge & understanding of autistics and their idiosyncrasies will be imperative. I already see some great programs to encourage mentoring…and I am quite sure those involved will feel an unbelievable fulfillment.
AUTISMHWY will be a place of celebration to enjoy our differences and learn through our similarities. I am so looking forward to meeting the amazing people on the AUTISMHWY!
