Today was our son Logan’s 17th birthday. I can’t believe how fast the years have gone by. It seems like only yesterday that he was our cute little boy and now he is our handsome young man.
This was not one of the weekends in which Logan and Abby come for a visit and so Amanda and I drove up to them. We had a fantastic visit with them, including a delicious birthday cake and ice cream. It was so good to be with them.
One of the highlights was getting to see Abby with her augmentative communication device. This is basically an iPad with software that allows her to speak. When we got there, she pressed the symbols that created the message, “I feel happy.” She also said, “I want birthday cake, please.” Smart girl that one.
It all made for a tremendous day of visiting with family. Birthdays with autism may look different, but they include just as much love.
