My Son the SuperHero

This is my man of passion
So,I have recently found out that my 7 year old has SPD. That doesn't really change much because he is an awesome kid. He is sarcastic, funny, smart and picky and slow to do a lot of things. I have been tending to his needs and have had to adjust the way I treat him versus the way I treat his sister who doesn't have SPD. Both of my kids are adorable and awesome.
My heart breaks at times though to know that he will never be like all the other kids and that he alone needs extra protection for his heart and spirit. But then I look at the joy of what he has accomplished and the gifts that God has given him and my heart cries for joy.
His touch is so gentle it gives me goosebumps. His love and hugs are the most genuine kind of love that I can ever receive from anyone. His smile makes my heart melt and his passion and no fear makes me proud of him for everything he can and will do.
SPD doesn't change anything in my home or with my son. It's just an understanding of who he is that I need to know!
