I watched a home-made video today of a little boy who is in a foreign country
receiving stem cells. His father asks him, "What are they doing to you"?
The little boy replies, "fixing me"...
The father says, "that's right".
So, this beautiful, verbal, little boy...who happens to be Autistic...is feeling "broken".
The messages sent to this child, who has been through many procedures to "fix" him is
that he is not complete.
We, as parent's, need to be very careful of the messages we send to our children.
Children are very smart and no matter what, we need them to know that they are
not broken, even with Autism.....
I feel very sad right now...sad for all of the children who have been made to believe
they are "broken" and need to be "fixed"....
- I am the proud mother of 6 children. 5 of our children have autism. We do not feel our world has ended, but just begun. We do not chelate, intervene biochemically, give shots of any kind, practice ABA, etc. We treat them as we treat any humanbeing. We treat them with kindness and respect and expect the same from them. They are exceptional children.
