Today’s Major #Autism Victory: Perseverance and Good Choices

Gavin had a totally awesome day today. He’s been making really good choices and has been a big help around the house.

I fully expect that we’ll have our share of bad days but that will just make the good ones even better.

Right now Gavin’s in a pretty good place.

He’s still every bit as psychotic as he’s ever been but it’s not very dark and it’s relatively non-violent. He’s also doing his best to contain his visibly challenged friends to his room.

They don’t always listen to him but he’s trying and I give him all the credit in the world.

Lizze and I are both really proud of him. We always try to make sure he knows that as well. He hasn’t had a major tantrum in awhile and that’s awesome.

I wanted to make sure to share this picture from today. He spent a lot of time working on this Lego robot and even though it fell apart several times, he kept his cool and never have up.

I love his smile in this picture. He’s happy and at peace and I can’t tell you how good it feels to see that.

He’s been through so much and his life will always be an uphill battle but if anyone can do it, it’ll be Gavin. 🙂
