Autistic Parents !
In the world of autism, a parent realises the struggle and the pain. But its the silent autistic child who goes through much more and with no way to crib about it. I felt I had cured my sons autism when i cured my perceptions and expectations of him. I see so much love in his eyes and how he silently says so much to me. I am thankful I am a changed person because of him. I might have never seen myself but for him. I was a professional, a scientist, an engineer, a nice human being, a witty person, a promising student and so many more things that I now realise is not the true me. But for Autism I would have left this world without knowing myself. I am grateful to him and hence i say " Autistic Parents" - These are parents who dont want to accept the truth, curse their fate and want to make their children "normal" so that they can rub shoulders with the other " successful parents". If we have no Autistic parent our children will all be normal.
