This morning I feel incredibly grateful to have witnessed the most amazing thing…
But first I should preface this blog post so it makes sense.
My gorgeous 6yo little boy has Aspergers Syndrome.
And recently a cognitive assessment showed a borderline intellectual disability.
To me though, it makes no difference. The “labels” that have been placed upon him.
He is my son
He is beautiful, and sweet and kind and gentle.
And I love him more than life itself.
I accept his limitations, and encourage him and support him. However I am also realistic with what he is capable of.
Which is what made this morning so special.
He was given a “challenge game” for his birthday. Where you have to fit the pieces in the right order so they all match. Kind of like a rubix cube.
The instructions with the game say: “This travel sized, single player game is great for almost any age! It is suitable for children from age 6 through to adults. Work your way through the various levels of difficulty, enhancing your concentration, problem solving, sequential thinking and hand-eye coordination skills”
This morning, in front of my eyes, he completed the puzzle.
All by himself.
This is something I have not even been able to achieve! And the 2nd time he did it (in a row!) I had my camera handy.
It was a truly wonderful moment, and I am incredibly and immensely proud of him ♥
To me it was better than winning lotto.
Children make you want to start life over.
