Happy Reunion

When my boy comes home after being gone for an extended period of time there is no doubting his excitement.

It had been five days.

When he spotted me in the parking lot he started giggling and emitting those happy squeals.

He started to skip/jump/race to me with his hands and fingers flapping so fast they were a blur.

He jumped into my arms where he just smiled at me.  A smile so bright it’s seared in my memory forever.

Screw those people who think people with autism are emotionless.  In fact I often find it the opposite.  He can’t hide what he’s feeling whether he wanted to or not.

Obviously he is able to show many emotions 😉
