When Cole was baptized at 5 months old, I wanted my words that were said aloud to be meaningful for the rest of his life. I wanted “you are exactly who you are supposed to be” to ring true in the present and for him to grow into those words. I have never understood the impact of one sentence until I spoke that one aloud. Cole is a sweet, kind, and gentle soul who happens to have Autism; in fact, he is non-verbal. His laugh is infectious, his curiosity for life is astonishing, his skipping run is something that is heart-warming, and his ability to work so incredibly hard, in various therapies, for the smallest gains that should have come naturally, is awe-inspiring. Cole has such an innocence about him and is so giving of his kindness to others.
