Dear “I Wish I Did Not Have Asperger’s”,
I don’t know who you are or what your story is. I heard that you went online looking for help and did not leave your name. I want you to know Asperger’s is not the End of the World.
My oldest boy has Asperger’s. Why was he born this way?
All signs indicated my newest addition would be a non-conformist.
After all, I know something about not fitting in myself.
Sometimes my son is too literal
And sometimes certain things are obvious
We all have things about ourselves we want to change.
I believe that every perceived bad thing, is tied to something beautiful. I live in the dusty desert. Without the dust, we would not have such beautiful sunsets.
I hope you can find the beauty in the way you were made. You are important and special and irreplaceable. Don’t change, find out what you are here to do. And do it.
