The STAMPING FOR AUTISM AWARENESS BLOG HOP is going on now. I made a fancy fold card in honor of my two boys who are on the Autism spectrum. Both of them are high functioning, but that doesn't mean that they don't have struggles everyday. They both are affected differently but they both love music, so I had to put music on my card. The heart is because they can get quite passionate about certain things. My one son will talk your ear off about Star Wars and the other will talk about Baseball. They don't like being touched and they don't deal well with change (some might call it rigid.) For example Tuesday dinner better be tacos and Friday's dinner better be pizza. To have something else on those nights, would make them so upset that they couldn't enjoy the meal. But the funny thing is those are the only nights that they are that way. But on all the other days they want to know hours in advance what we will be eating and I better not change my mind once I tell them. I love them to the moon and back, but there are days that I wish they didn't have to "Be different" and that other people could see the real them.
