Mor, my autistic son, had his 16th birthday a few days ago. I can’t believe he’s 16 already…His birthday made me think about the past 16 years from the day he was born and the journey we made from then to now. The journey with Autism.
This is not an easy journey. Some people I meet try to hide their pity. They think this is a disease and they feel sorry for me and him. But the most important thing I’ve learned in the past 16 years is that not only do I not need to be felt sorry for. I’m proud, happy and honored to a mother of such an AMAZING boy!
He has such a unique way of seeing the world and understanding it. And even when he doesn’t understand he doesn’t give up he finds his inner strength to cope with everything that the world throws at him. He is gentle, considerate and has a good heart. He’s so loving and caring.
Yes sometimes things get difficult, he gets angry or sad but he has me and together we are invincible!
I see how he solves the problems and challenges in his life and it fills me with pride. Such a unique young man that is an inspiration!
I created this art journal page so quickly because I just knew how I felt and I didn’t need to think or plan. It just poured out of me and it just describes everything I wanted exactly how I wanted. Definitely one of my favorite art journal pages of all times.

Have fun creating!
