Wow. Really incredible share. Thank you for that.

And “spectrum people” is my new favorite phrase. I hope you don’t mind if I borrow it. Makes them sound like a rainbow, which they are. So many beautiful colors. :)

My kids are, indeed, my world. There’s a part of me who had them for the reasons you describe…so I wouldn’t feel alone. They are amazing and I am beyond blessed.

You didn’t register to me as presumptuous. How would you have known? That’s what the whole human connection thing is…why we read and write and share. I’m glad you wrote so I could reply and we could have this whole exchange and learn more about life from a different human’s perspective.

Thanks again for engaging. I keep re-reading your response and finding new things to think about. I hope you do stick around and I see that you haven’t written in a while, but I’m going to follow you anyway. Just in case.


Mama, writer, lover, fighter — I wear my heart on my sleeve because my pants pockets are too small.
