Good Friends are Hard to Find

Happy Wednesday Everyone

Today is a bittersweet day for me. It is the last day that Cassie and I have before she heads home to the UK but by the same token it is reminder of how special our friendship really is. I wish everyone could find such a friend. It doesn't matter how long in between visits we find a way to stay close through daily msn audio chats and phone calls.

Keeping a friendship going takes a little bit of effort and this can make it difficult for the kids on the spectrum. An inappropriate comment or gesture from a child with Asperger's or other autism condition can sometimes be taken out of context if the person is unaware of the social difficulties these kids face every day.

I wish there was some way to clue the world in on the fact that these kids deserve to have friends too and if people would just give them a break they would find that they have much to give to a friendship. One thing is a given, it would never be boring!!! :-)

Great article on autism and friendship

All the best
