Hello, my name is Quinn. Autism to me is being different, in a good way, that takes a lot of courage. To me it’s a symbol of courage. I like to think it’s something cool because I’m different than everyone else, in a good way.
To me, as Quinn’s mom, I can’t imagine him being any different. He’s perfectly himself, in a fun, quirky, caring way. He likes to help people and often takes on a role of ensuring everyone around him feels cared for and safe. Life isn’t always easy for him but that hasn’t changed how he positively works to make the world a better place.
