The little guy is making progress. We have a new normal.


Autism:  Two Years After Diagnosis

 

A tap trickled water away drop by drop

Like dreams in bubbles that drifted and dissolved.

Then someone had an idea. It worked slowly, but well.

We caught the water in a bucket, used the water to grow

Something new.

It’s not the corn field we had planned,

But a bulb, a purple sweep of gladiolas

On a single stem to brighten the world.

All is not lost.  Joy returns.

We seek the good and the beautiful,

Every small step a victory.
