underneath we are all the same
Contributed by Kristin
Here is an interaction with my 11 year old autistic daughter:
My 11 year old autistic daughter to me when I picked her up all happy and giggly from social skills group today: "Thank God for Autism".
Me: "What makes you say that?"
Her: "I'm so happy I have it!"
I told her that yes, it was part of what makes her special and unique and she said: "Yes but underneath we are all the same".
Yeah for positive self image and self advocacy!!
