Success in Our World

What does success look like in our world?

Success that would have NEVER happened six months ago…we would have had to get a babysitter for Cooper, split up, or skipped it.

Success is attending an outdoor Easter Egg hunt at our church as a family. And of course wearing a swimsuit because mom mentioned the word ‘waterpark’ this morning.

Being near a road and not running into it.

Waving at people.

Smiling.

Talking to people.

Sitting for a few minutes inside the church.

Safely wandering.

Going on the risers and pretending to sing…and everyone clapping for our nonverbal boy.

Using the public restroom.

Trying to open up every single door.

One child ignoring all 2,000 Easter eggs and the other one laughing and running with his friends and picking up 50.

Being in our community.

People seeing Cooper. Educating about autism.

Riding in the car safely.

Transitioning home.

It’s a good day. We had a blast.

Even though I’ve been following your story for some months now, it would never have occurred to me about the bathroom issue. If I had ever come across this situation and had a bad reaction to the situation , it would have been from ignorance not malice. Thank you.💕 Read Less

When my son was first diagnosed with autism no one was talking about it. Autism was hidden. I vow to change that.
