Somehow the "special needs" world isn't so big, and a post was put up just after Christmas from a mom posted a blog titled "Being Retarded" and found the blog very very accurate and very good.
Here is the post. *I am not including the picture of the girl but you can go to the link if you feel inclined and read the post directly to see the photo of a VERY cute girl!*
* Please visit the blog!! *
Tyler has a diagnosis that makes him delayed in many ways. He is not 100 % of his peers. He goes to a class that is for delayed children. He attends with autistic children, down syndrome, and many other diagnosis. He is BY FAR the most handicapped person in his class. Meaning he is affected on EVERY level. There is not one of the five senses of Tyler that is not limited or "retarded."
But what Tyler posses are all of those things the mom says. He is innocent. He will NEVER know hate. He will never know that the words that verbally assaulted me to the core, are words that are of hate. He will never understand that. He just doesn't. He will never realize that he shouldn't love unconditionally.
He is smart. He is very smart. He knows so many things and he gets things. He is a very special kid with a heart of gold and the spirit of a Giant.
