Dear Sebby, you are an extraordinary kid!

Dear Sebby,

You are an extraordinary kid. You taught yourself to read at age 2. You love your little cars, spelling and math, stickers, your kitty Milo and your brother and sister. You are the best big brother.

You fought quite the battle when you were born, you had trouble breathing and we were so worried, but now, you are a wild and rockin soon to be first grader.

You know why you are an extraordinary kid? Some times it’s because while you have Autism, you don’t let it have you. You do things that parents of typical kids would think is no big deal, but Sebby, the thing is, we know it’s a big deal. We know how hard you work to learn and do things, and how much pride you have asking us questions. The way you do math in your head is amazing Sebby! I’m not talking 2 plus 2 but 25 times 44! You are so smart!

You get better and better each day about talking to people. It’s not you being shy, it’s learning how to handle social situations, and I know it’s a huge deal for you! Your Daddy and I know you work hard at that and you are always comfortable with it.

We are so proud of you for trying new things! You rode a horse for the first time last month! You did so well! Only your Daddy and I know how special that was and how brave you were!
