Today I’m going to talk about falling in love. Now before you get all excited let me clarify. I am not talking about romantic love. The type of love I am talking about is the love you feel when someone really gets you.
I remember how I used to feel when everyone thought I was low functioning. I was so sad and lost. I thought that no one would ever see me and that I would be trapped forever. But my wonderful mother never gave up on me.
I was taken to see Tracy Gunn who is a Speech Therapist. She is trained to work with non-speaking autistics. She sees me. She understands my body and respects my brain. She fights to make sure I get a good education and she finds friends for me. I love her so much.
My wish is that every non-speaking autistic can find a Tracy. Someone who fights for them and gives them a voice.
Until next time
