Such a hard moment 😫



February 20, 2020

The mother is a bitch. She does not understand what Autism is and how it effects people. I am a special needs kid but I don't have a diagnosis of Autism (I have characteristics but not the full diagnosis) and I go school with kids who have Autism and they are no different than anyone else just like me. We are human beings but we are just a little different.
