i understand that you can get to that place, but when looking at these children, they do have medical issues involving many bodily processes such that should be addressed and to totally disregard that, well that’s negligent.
Acceptance is not ignoring medical issues. I do not believe this mama implied that at all. Sheesh.. judgmental much?
I just wanted to say that Autism is not a bad thing. I worked with special needs people from the time I was 13 until I was 21…every summer I looked forward to going to “work” at the day camp. I was furious when the director wanted to start paying me to be there. Every summer I go back to Michigan, that camp is on my list of places to go and volunteer for a day or two (though I haven’t been back in the summer since I was pregnant with my daughter in 2008).
In all honesty, I can’t say I loved my autistic kids and adults the most, or the down syndrome kids or anything else, they are all special and wonderful and unique. The one thing I will say is, I loved them more than the “normal” kids I grew up with, went to school with, danced with. These kids with the difficulties, they are the ones that make life so special and wonderful and worth living every day. I can’t help but smile anytime I see someone with a special need. If I could, I’d give you a great big hug right now because you, as a parent of a special need child, make them the wonderful human beings they are. Thank you!
