Don't mourn for us


This LO has been created for the Autism Awareness Gallery. I have chosen a quote from Jim Sinclair. For the full text see
I have chosen this photo of Sasha, where he runs happy and carefree on the beach in Viareggio.
A moment of pure happiness.
When Sasha was born, I started collecting all these Folio Society books for him, thinking that he will be taking after us. We talked to him in three languages. Little did we know that our boy would be developing at his own pace, and won't be talking at 5.
Thanks to him, we became better people, I hope, more tolerant and understanding. And we also learnt to appreciate simple pleasures of life, like running along the beach "Phoebe Buffet's style"...

Thank you, girls. It was a hard LO for me, I kept swallowing tears, when I wrote the quote from Sinclair, I find it very moving.
