Happy, Sad, Mad, Angry, Bored, Frustrated, and the list goes on. Emotions are a part of everyday life, and frankly a part us "typicals" take for granted. Though, for "atypicals" (autistic) emotions do not come naturally. Just saying "I miss daddy" is a big feat. That is why I was excited when I heard Blue Eyes mutter those words in a monotone fashion. My heart swelled with such love and pride for my Blue Eyes. He had finally voiced an emotion besides happiness or anger! It was such a breakthrough. And now, it's time to teach him the rest. I know this road will be long and tedious, but I am willing to go the distance. Blue Eyes will learn emotions one day, I just know it. And I will be there along the way encouraging him through the trials he surely will endure!
