My beautiful little girl has autism and she touches my emotions so deeply that she leaves fingerprints on my heart.
The overwhelming love you have for your child. The heartbreak when you realize your child is slipping away from you and you can't pull them back. The undeniable frustration when they try to communicate the only way they know how but you don't understand and don't know how to bridge the gap. The determination you have to free them from the prison they are in. The pure Joy you feel with each and every step forward they make towards healing no matter how small it is. Those are the fingerprints of autism.

We asked her if she wanted to go on it and she said no at first, but when we were leaving she asked to go on it. Most of the time she will change her mind at the last minute.... not this time! She was a little nervous at first but loved it after the first time around!
