The Upside Down World of the Autism Parent
In An Instant

We Have to Believe in Santa Claus

Santa With Child
I saw the post below on Facebook yesterday. How do you feel when someone, ANYone goes out of his or her way to meet your child where he or she is? To ignore the communication or behavior barriers. To disregard the developmental age difference. TO TREAT YOUR CHILD LIKE A PERSON WORTHY OF FULL PRESENCE. I know parents who barely connect with their own children. And strangers who can click just like that. The holidays can be so hard for families in the AofA community. I don't need to list the ways, you surely know. The holidays can also remind us that love exists, kindness is not gone and there will always be someone to cherish our children, if only for a visit.  To make our broken hearts.... full.

I whispered to Santa “he is blind and autistic and is very interested in Santa”. He said “say no more” and immediately got down on the floor to greet my little man. He talked to Matthew for a long time. Let him feel all over him. Told him to pull his beard, feel his hat and talked about his red suit. He asked Matthew if he wanted to feel anything and Matthew said “your eyes that twinkle” (from the poem ‘twas the night before Christmas) so santa let him touch all over his eyes for as long as Matthew wanted. Then Santa said have you ever felt a real reindeer. Santa then carried him over to the display area. And had Matthew pet the taxidermy reindeer they had set up. It was great. My heart was full seeing Matthew so interested.

Wuhan bioweapons coverThe Wuhan Cover-Up: And the Terrifying Bioweapons Arms Race (Children’s Health Defense)
By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

“Whenever I read, listen to, or debate Bobby, I learn something new and change my mind on at least one or two issues, while vehemently disagreeing with many others. Both the agreements and disagreements stimulate my thinking and emotions, even when they make me angry or concerned. Read him and make up your own minds." —Alan Dershowitz

“The Wuhan Cover-Up will blow out of the water the international disinformation campaign by US and Chinese government officials and their bribed scientists that COVID-19 somehow magically jumped out of the Wuhan wet market. Kennedy’s book will provide the ammunition needed for us lawyers to hold them all legally accountable for this Nuremberg Crime against Humanity.” —Professor Francis A. Boyle, author of the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989



Weekend reads:

"Wake Up Kids"! Anti-Virus Guy Died Trying to Save You
World's most connected former billionaire warned about the coming vax population cull. He was found dead shortly after.

"Do not under ANY circumstances let them give this Vaccine to your Kids."
John McCafee 5AM Feb 5, 2020

"Dr Mike Yeadon has allowed the evidence to be his guide in his journey from the Pfizer mainstream to grasping the magnitude of what is happening with regard to the scale of evil behind 'Covid' and human society. This is his address missed by British MPs this week."

No Good Surrogacies: A Surrogacy Baby Speaks Out


"He asked Matthew if he wanted to feel anything and Matthew said “your eyes that twinkle”

What a precious little boy! Makes my eyes mist up. Good on you Santa for brightening his day!

I remember when my vaccine injured son was accepted into our charter STEM school. They said he was just the kind of student they were looking for. That kind of comment was a first for us. This school has no Special Ed and only offers AP level courses. To help students like my son with social skills, they employed a drama teacher and discretely put them in the Communications Club where they produced the morning announcements via the school TV studio. He loved it. They also had him make oral presentations before the incoming freshmen classes. This school was a dream come true for him.
