Love Needs No Words

Here is my blue-eyed, blonde hair, sweet boy looking at me.

He shows his love through his eyes.

He may be unable to tell me he loves me verbally, but he shows me in his unique way. 

Thinking back three years ago, life was a lot different. It was the start of our autism journey. It was the start that our life would change forever.

He was not making any form of eye contact.

He would not interact with peers.

He would always want to be left alone.

It was a point in my life that I thought my son didn’t love me because he verbally could not tell me. He did not even try to show me that he loved me.

I just felt so empty.

Scared.

Hurt.

Those are just a few words I thought at the time. I felt things would never get better.

Here we are almost four years later, and my son has shown me a different type of love. A love that does not need words. The gestures and actions mean so much more to me.

He has a unique way he tells me. A way that everyone can see even when the words I LOVE YOU are never said.
