“Just as I start to have fun with you, you push me away and it makes me cry. Why do you do that? I wish you could talk to me and tell me. I would understand. I love you.”
“How badly I want you to use his life to turn yours around.”
“I felt robbed. I felt like life was working against me in every angle possible. I remember asking myself — why me? Why am I being challenged in this way?”
“If you see a kid flapping their arms, don’t laugh. If you see an adult having a meltdown, don’t stare. If they go for a hug or high five, don’t shy away. A smile from a stranger can quite literally change our day.”
“You’ll love your momma so much more because she gave you a sister, who is going to love you like crazy, too.”
We are forever indebted to this brilliant man.
