Autism Makes Me Better

I just read this great post in all the ways this particular mama feels raising her autistic children has made her a better person.

No, it's not all sunshine and roses, but it's not all blood and thorns either. I can appreciate her positive perspective and I often feel the same way. I have learned more patience, compassion and understanding from my son than from any other person. And like her kids, my son is just hilarious to be around. His smile can light up a room. It's easy to keep smiling with him around and we are all better off for it.
