You Say It’s Your Birthday…

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

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!
