Love: Autism Style

Jess over at A Diary of a Mom wrote a beautiful post about Brooke showing Katie empathy. Yes go read it. I'll wait.

Back? Ok good. So I remember the doctor saying the Boy Wonder would never really connect with people or show love and affection. I have found that statement to be untrue.  I have a cousin who from here on out shall be referred to as SuperCuzzy. Boy Wonder loves her. LOVES HER. They have a special connection. He cries when she leaves.  She is an AHHHHHHMMAAZZZINNNGG person. She worked as a respite worker for a family with several kids on the spectrum during college. When she visits, there's no explanations and no judgements. She just sees, helps, gets it. So when she walked in the door Friday afternoon, she was immediately jumped on and loved by Boy Wonder.

So he'll never show love and affection? Yeah sure whatever. Tell that to SuperCuzzy. She'll tell you different.


  1. I.LOVE.THIS. That photo is pure joy and happiness.

  2. This makes me smile every time I look at it. All the way from my heart to my toes. So beautiful and joyful. That's your boy...beautiful and joyful.
