Today’s gift: M attended the second half of a birthday party by himself !
M is almost 9 (with sensory and social skills issues) and he avoids parties. I supported him for the first hour of the party and then forced myself to leave.
Fast forward to Noon — he did beautifully. He was independent, engaged (as much as he can be), and happy. Really happy. I’m very grateful to the support and love his friend A (and her parents) showed M.
An unexpected gift on a beautiful September day. I’m happy!
