He tries to keep his impulses under control, at least most of the time, and he usually fails.
Yes, he asks the same thing over and over and over and over...
And, he cries a lot.
He has intense anxiety and worries too much.
To many strangers he looks naughty...not normal.
I wish I could tell them all that he tries.
Everyday we start over.
Everyday we work at over coming.
Everyday we learn.
Sometimes we fail.
Sometimes we succeed.
I wish I could tell them all that he is a normal boy.
He hurts and feels just like the rest of us.
This world just feels a little different to him than to the rest of us.
It is not wrong how he feels, it is just different.
He deserves everything wonderful just like us all.
I wish they could see him like I see him.
I wish they would give him a chance.
They would be surprised- he is wonderful.
He has overcome so much.
He has grown and changed and made so much progress.
If they really knew, they would be so proud of my boy.
Dane has taught me something. I need to see everyone thru the eyes of Jesus and not take behaviors or actions at face value. Sometimes I just need to look a little deeper. I am sure many that I judge, feel like I do about my Dane- they wish I could see them...their hearts. I bet if I looked closely I would be surprised too.
