Have you ever wondered if what it would be like to impact someone’s life in a miraculous way for a living?
To know because of your work someone’s life is being impacted for the better?
Every day when I walk into the Miles Autism Resource Center for the past year I have become more stronger and more aware as a person. When I am working with the children I know they are also teaching me.
Each child has a gift that they are unaware of and our job is to show them just that. Some do not talk and leave speaking in full sentences. Some do not know to that a car rolls down a ramp, a ball bounces, and trampolines are to jump on. We show them how. The ones who can’t read, learn to read, write and spell. These children leave completely transformed all because some said “I will impact a child.”
As rosey as that all sounds there is a battle inside each child called Autism. Our job is to know how we can crack the code and know how to reach them. There is a life long commitment beyond just parenting for the parents and we are there to help. We will not give up. Some of them refuse to learn something new but we stick with them the whole way. If it takes thirty minutes for a child to sign cracker for a cracker then we are doing it right. Why? Because they now know we are not giving up on them by just giving them the cracker. Another battle won, communication. As silly as that sounds it’s real. Showing them the gifts they have by fighting every battle is worth it. The littles battles are the gateways of helping these children become transformed.
Knowing I am impacting a child for a living has impacted me.
