These past few days, Nathan would play with me for a whole hour. He would look straight into my eyes, smile & laugh and ask me for his favourite games. Then in the following hour, he will disconnect and go back into his world of autism. I allow him his comfort while waiting for him to choose to engage with me again. After all, he just climbed a mountain and decided to take a break for the next trek.
I feel blessed that we have found a way to conquer this mountain! On we tread, step by step, knowing that in time we will get there.
In the photo is one of my favourite games to play with Nathan, giving him squeeze hugs with lots of laughter and kisses.
