Okay, I found this new blog and it ROCKS! She did 30 days of prayers for Autism awareness month in April. Short, sweet, to the point. I am changing my format to not be so “wordy.” Laughs! Through her blog I also found TONS of other bloggers with special needs kids. Truly inspirational and amazing people. The thing that inspired me the most is there are literally thousands of people out there walking this same road with me. I am not alone even when I am stuck at home when I am too tired or afraid to venture out. They get what I am saying. The Internet is full of junk but it can be such a blessing if you know where to look. Recently, I wrote about how Willow’s destructiveness guards me against materialism.
I got a well intentioned (anonymous) comment by someone who obviously does not live with Autism, or me, about why some people chase my daughter around. I deleted it. They don’t get it, at all. This person does. This article touched me so deeply. I can’t begin to tell you. She talks about things being “broken” and how God sees them whole, perfect. The Great Healer. I pray that today, that we find a cure for Autism. I pray that someday my daughter can look at me and talk. That she can can get married, have children, become a nun…or whatever she wants. More than anything I pray that if God chooses not to heal her that he give me the wisdom to care for her and teach her. I also pray that God surrounds her with loving people that are kind…and tolerant (Matthew 25:31-46).
