Growing Up With Autism
I was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around my neck twice. I stopped breathing, and the doctor had to run some tests to see if I had down syndrome, but I did not. I've gone to a lot of speech therapy from elementary school all the way to my final year in high school. I was diagnosed with Autism right before my 14th Birthday. I always ask, "Why do I have this disability?", but God put me on this Earth for a reason, to tell people about what it's like having autism. God and Jesus are always there for me when I'm struggling with things. Praise God for making me special.
