If I had the power I would not change a single thing about Diego’s personality. I would definitely change the issues he has associated with his Aspergers/ASD, but his personality is the best ever!!
Diego’s laugh is contagious and comes from a place of complete joy. His laugh never ceases to put a smile on my face.
Diego has got a fantastic sense of humor,different but fantastic, and without even meaning to he cracks all of us up on a regular basis.
Like the day he came out of nowhere and told me that rabbits don’t live on other planets, when I asked him why, he said it was because they are not Astronauts & walked away.
I fell out in the kitchen .
Diego is honest and it is beautiful.
In a world where honest people are so rare, this is very refreshing to experience daily. I am doing my best to teach him to harness his truth, but I don’t see myself discouraging it much. I think the only time I may encourage him to be honest quietly is if it would really hurt someone elses feelings.
Diego is a strong young man, he faces his challenges head on and really tries to do his best.
His determination inspires me everyday.
Diego has such a beautiful spirit,the love he gives to all of us is unconditional and genuine.
At the end of the day D Aspergers/ASD, but it doesn’t define all he is as a person.
I am blessed to have the children I do and even on the hardest day, I don’t ever forget that.
