Today Was a good Day!
My son, Xander, snuggled up to me, as much as he does, and told me that he loved me. Those moments of unprovoked tenderness from a child that has Autism are rare if at all. As parents telling our children we love them and hearing it in return is almost like an echo in a cave, we take it for granite, at least while they are young, as they grow older the echo gets further and further away. But for me telling my son I love him I have learned not to expect the echo but to cherish the rare glimpse of light. I know he loves me, and I can fell that he knows I love him so the words, even though I choose to say them often, are often unnecessary.
