    Your letter to Rose is beautiful. I am 53 and I wrote down some of those ‘I am’ statements so I could look in the mirror and recite them. I also work with special need students at the High School level. Rose is an exceptional sister. She my ask questions about autism or she may have picked up what she needs from you and her Daddy’s conversations. My guess is she has a very good example/role model to follow; Her mohter. Thanks for writing your blog.

    I always wanted a girl and got boys but seem to have filled them with the same compassion and kindness so I can’t really complain. Rose sounds beautiful and delicate just like the flower she’s named for :)
