Post Secret

I feel like this post card could have been written by my husband:


This post card falls in line with my struggles on the line of autism. This is one of the things that wants me to keep his diagnosis quiet, because I don't want someone to look at him as a diagnosis. I want them to see the bright, sweet, and wonderful little boy whom we love deeply and who brings happiness into our lives.

He is not affected by autism as strongly as other kids are, and revealing his diagnosis to people seems to make some think that the topic is open for discussion, and it often leads to them labeling him as "the autistic kid" instead of Stewie, the boy who loves trains, motorcycles, and his little sister.
