When I tell you that my son has additional needs or autism, don’t say you’re sorry
There is nothing to be sorry about, I’m not sorry!
He is a lovely, happy, healthy little boy
Yes he is different
Yes he has his struggles
But more than anything… he is amazing and he amazes us every day.
He has taught us so much about how to be parents and what being a good parent is.
He has taught us just how much we can love someone and just what unconditional love is.
He has taught us tolerance and patience.
And for that we are grateful
Just because he doesn’t do what a ‘normal’ child does, doesn’t mean that you need to be sorry, there is nothing to be sorry about.
