About Little Man and his Family
I am a Mom I currently have one son who is 7years old and in the 2nd grade. My son is ADHD and has a High Functioning Autism. Everything I thought I knew about parenting flew out the window that day my son was born…….. My husband and I have been wanting to foster adopt for a few years now so this year we are planning on starting the process. We really want another little boy around the age of 5 and our son is really excited. Since we told him the plan last year he has been asking “When am I going to get my brother?” I am also currently looking into how to start a Charter School for Autistic Children in my area.
“Autists are the ultimate square pegs, and the problem with pounding a square peg into a round hole is not that the hammering is hard work. It’s that you’re destroying the peg.”
― Paul Collins
“Autism, is part of my child, it’s not everything he is. My child is so much more than a diagnosis.”
― Sandra L Westendorf-Coelho, The World According to August – One Good Friend
“I know of nobody who is purely autistic, or purely neurotypical. Even God has some autistic moments, which is why the planets spin.”
