My second son, Nick lives with his dad Arden and me, Eva, his mom in Carnation, Washington, USA. He is 37 years old and we take care of him. It is a big job. We have had a lot of help along the way.
We raised our 4 kids and quite a few other peoples kids, so he has a lot of siblings that love him. Nick has traveled with us to many beautiful places on our planet. He loves, loves, loves airplanes and airports, which is great for us.
I know that he is more popular than me. Whenever I post a picture of him to Facebook or comment on what he has said or done, others like that. For someone who has difficulty verbally articulating what he is feeling, he gets his message across and it has a big impact.
When he was born, I knew right away that there was something different about him. I was a young mom of 22. He was my second son. Being his mom has changed me. He has taught me many things. I have learned to look past the first impressions, the outward appearance, the obvious behaviors and see the person.
I hope that we all commit to looking past the obvious and see the person. Try it, you will be changed.
