As a parent, I watched my child obsessively from the time he was born. I couldn't stop staring at him- from the perfect little fingers to the blue eyes gazing with wonder. It was easy to envelop my world in this little body. He was my "everything", and I was his.
Asperger Syndrome is a term that was previously used to identify high functioning individuals with autism. It's no longer used as a subtype of autism, because all subtypes are now included in the autism spectrum disorder classification.
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, is a developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people. It also affects how they make sense of the word around them.

I broke a glass at exactly 6:01 this morning, and I forgot to switch the laundry.
I had a terrible workout.
