Tricia’s son, Timothy, was diagnosed with nonverbal autism at 2 years old. This means it is hard for Timothy to interact with others, especially in large groups. That usually doesn’t stop Timothy from enjoying the many things that other 7 year old boys enjoy – he likes to play soccer, swim and watch YouTube videos. But Timothy and his mum have to almost always decline his invitations to parties because of his condition.
But one day, Timothy came home with this…
One of the mothers, whose son is friends with Timothy, decided to send Tricia a note, along with the invitation:
The note read:
“Carter sat beside Timothy at school and he always talks about him. I really hope he can come. We are renting a bounce castle that we can attach a small bounce slide at the bottom. We will also have water balloons and water guns. Maybe Timothy can come earlier in the day if it would too much with the whole class. Let me know so we can make it work.”
The note moved Tricia to tears. To her, the final phrase “we can make it work” meant the world! Timothy had a fantastic time at the party and Tricia now knows she has the support of a fellow mom to help make the challenges of Timothy’s condition a little easier!
