Autism and the God Connection: Redefining the Autistic Experience Through Extraordinary Accounts of Spiritual Giftedness by William Stillman.
I must admit, I did not go to the library in search of this book. The title seemed to jump out at me when I saw it. Why?
From an early age my husband and I noticed differences in our youngest child, Shayla. We used to say she had an old soul. She seemed so careful, so wise beyond her years. She would stand on the sidelines and watch children of her age fall and make mistakes. Many would say that is because of her perfectionist quality or anxieties, or whatever, but we saw something different. Words can't describe what we saw in her, you'll just have to take my word for it.
So, there's another glimpse from my life - unbelieveable, I know. That's why I haven't opened up much about our personal life. In my profile, I describe our family as quirky and dysfunctional. See what I mean . .
Does anyone else have a similar experience? Oh please share, and don't make me feel like I'm the only one!
