1st day home

1st day home

Dear autism,
I was thinking back over the last three years today.  This picture is of Savi’s 1st day home from the hospital.  Who would have thought we’d be where we are today?  Back then I didn’t even know what autism was.  I just knew that I had another perfect little baby and big bright dreams for his future.  Today those dreams have changed a little, and that’s ok; we are flexible.  But they aren’t any less big and bright.  I can’t wait for him to say his first words, drive a car, go off to college, get married, and give me grandchildren.  Now his life may not play itself out this way, but heck his typically developing sibs may not either!  Today I’m grateful for my boy JUST THE WAY HE IS…and you can never take that away from me.
