    This is such a fantastic post, it really made me emotional for all of the right reasons! Reading this is exactly how I feel but struggle to put into words, thank you for saying what I only wish I could, such an inspiration! x

    What an excellent answer. I feel like it should have been obvious, but from where I stand I was a long way from figuring it out. As always, thanks for having a insightful, well-written, and really touching blog.

    That’s a very thoughtful response for you to offer parents. I like it.
    As for excrement, one of mine decorated the bathroom walls and floor with his product at another child’s birthday party (in their stunning home!). Oh the shame…

    As part of a Friends (Quaker) church it’s not uncommon for me to hear or say (or think) “that Friend speaks my mind” in response to something another has shared that speaks to my heart and my condition. I can’t tell you how many times I say to myself this phrase after I’ve read something you’ve written. I even drink my coffee with lots of vanilla creamer (I buy the big jug they’ve started making). Thanks again for putting beautiful words to what my heart feels.

    I think Janell put it beautifully. You put to words what so many of our mama (and daddy) hearts feel about the children we’ve been given. That heart of yours? The one that thought instead to get up, go over, give physical eyeball-to-eyeball contact in the form of a question about their well-being? That’s what makes you beautiful. Yes indeed.

    Even though my children are grown and none had autism, your post are very inspiring and educating. Now when I am in a public place and a child and parent are have challenge, I try to remember Carrie and Jack. Thank you and bless you.
