Never, Ever Give Up
He's not gonna win as I have my Reeboks on, but I have to give the kid top marks for tenacity...he doesn't stop trying.
I'd love an ounce of his ability to keep trying.
He uses this skill to pick locks, scale walls and move educational mountains.
I mean this literally...
(...metaphors are for the non-autie community).
I am optimistic that one day this skill will enable him to better verbalize his needs, to be more independent and to become all that he is capable of becoming.
Sometimes I stop trying because of a boring list of "reasons" too tiresome to type...
...yet my *cough* disabled child never says "Never".
It's just not in his vocabulary.
That's a pretty cool language I'd like to learn.
