I am participating in the Health Activist Writers Month Challenge, in which I publish a post every day for the month of April, based on health-related prompts.
April 29 – Six sentence story: In this day of micro-blogging – brevity is a skill worth honing. Can you tell a story and make it short and sweet? What can you say in six sentences?
When my son George was diagnosed with autism, I didn’t really know what it meant or what he would ultimately be capable of.
I didn’t know what it would mean for my family, or for George’s sibling relationship with his little brother.
Since then, we have discovered that George has potential that reaches beyond the stars, and that all we have to do is help him get there.
We have discovered that he has a big heart with an infinite capacity for love, and that he and his brother will be best friends for life.
There are challenges, and I worry about what the future could bring for my boy.
But I believe in him absolutely.
