The signs of autism persist — as of course they will — but we continue to delight in many of them, including C's little 'arrangements.'
Unlike his twin, C doesn't find joy in a local carnival. Nonetheless, I'm grateful he knows how to cope, finding his own little island of peace and quiet even in the most overwhelming situations.
And when he's at home or somewhere else where he feels comfortable, C is one of the happiest people I've ever known.
This is an amazing journey.
