There is a very special little boy in my life. He is sweet, brilliant and a joy to be around. And he has been diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), commonly known as Autism.
I have known this little boy since birth and he has taught me so much. I’ve learned to stop and watch the ants because they really are fascinating and I’ve learned how truly noisy a quiet house can be. I’ve also learned that no matter what we might label someone or how we might decide to categorize someone, the truth is that they were the same people before the label. The same wonderfully loving, charming people.
