This is my 9 year old son who has recently been diagnosed with autism, he isn't your average 9 year old, he doesn't do sport, conversation, or anything that involves talking or interacting with people. This photo was taken at a communion last year; it took him all day to pluck up the courage to stand in the line to get it done. Once he finally got it he was so excited to show it off just to be laughed at and asked what is it supposed to be? To him it did not matter, he just wanted to be like everyone else and all they did was laugh. What I would say to people about autism is never laugh at a child's achievements whether they have a disability or not, you never know how much courage it took to do something that is so difficult for them. My boy is called Josh.
