This is the Face of Autism

This is the face of a kid who is full of energy and loves to laugh.

This is the face of a kid who still enjoys Sesame Street and Veggie Tales characters, even though he’s 12 and already standing at 5’6!

This is the face of a kid who has few words and is yet ENERGIZED when around other children (and yes, he’s TOWERING over most of them).

This is the face of a kid who after spending hours swimming (body wrinkled like a raisin & three shades darker from the sun) would jump at the opportunity to continue playing in the water…in fact, he DEMANDS it!

This is the face of a kid who has overcome so much in so little time and whose daily grind consist of school and intense therapy sessions.

This is the face of a kid who displays a genuine concern for others…especially when they’re hurting.

This is the face of a kid who is loved MUCH MORE than he will ever know.

This is the face of a kid…MY KID…the face of autism.
