Yesterday, I had not come up with an exciting writing prompt, so I simply asked Oliver to tell me about himself. This is what he wrote:
"My name is Oliver. I will be ten years old on Saturday. I have autism. That means that I have a hard time making friends and that some more things are hard. Like talking. My brain works different from yours. I am really good at riding my bike, spelling, and math. I like to swim in the ocean. I have a brother named Sami and a brother named Luke."
He forgot to include that he is easy to love and has an incredibly beautiful smile and that he inspires me every single day.
