There are brilliant autism stories that have been written, blog posts that have been posted, and articles that have been published, that are sadly buried in the news feeds and blogosphere…We’re on the hunt for these missing manuscripts to bring these ‘treasures’ back for you to discover!
Have the tissues ready for this particular masterpiece…
Instructions from Love
By Sharon Cummings, Conquer for Conner – My Special Love
This is what I have written on a pad left next to my bed every night. It reads:
Conner if Mommy does not wake up and you cannot wake me up do not panic. You will be fine. Call 911 like we practiced…you know how. Remember to tell them your name and that you need help. Mommy is not waking up. They will help you. They will stay on the phone and tell you when the ambulance is at the door. Open the door. You can ride with them-they will help you. Call the names and numbers listed here. If it is too hard ask them to help you. You will be fine just like we talked about.
Mommy will always be with you in your heart and soul. I will be a part of you guiding and protecting you.You did a good job, I am proud of you. Now read my next instructions and I left a message for you.Most important Mommy loves you. You will have a great magical life just like we talked about. I love you past the other side of the rainbow. You are the best thing that ever happened to me. Mommy and Conner forever-You will always be My Special Love! Hugs and kisses…..
Sometimes you have to keep it real!
