I have a grandson that means that world to me,he is one of the smartest kids I know but somethings are a little different for him You see~he was born with Autism and Asperger's. He tries to fit in with the others but sometimes it is hard for him. He will be your best friend,as he is the one that will be there until the end book. He is such a Sweetheart and here is a poem that really hit my heart.

Here is a Poem From the Book~
Autism Does Not Define Me 
{By Karen Krejcha}

Accept me for who I am,
Understand that I may not always get what you're saying.
Trust that God has me here for a reason;
I am an amazing human being.
Socially, I might not fit in with society's expectations.
Mentoring can help me along the way.

Don't forget that I have feelings even if I don't express them.
Opportunities for my happiness are indeed possible.
Educate and encourage me without prejudice.
Show patience and kindness along the way.

Never give up trying to "get" me
Ostracizing me will just shut me down.
Take time to try and come into my world.

Defining me as my diagnosis ignores my essence and best qualities.
Emerging talents may arise when you least expect them.
Friendship and honesty is valued to me more than you can imagine.
I am in need of love and tenderness too.
Never let me give up, especially when you see my mood shift.
Expect the unexpected and watch me enrich your life.

Many people will read this and I pray millions will act.
Embrace and empower someone with Autism today.

This is such a great read,and I am planning on sharing this copy with my daughter as I know that she will enjoy it as much as I did,if not more!
