We decided to take Johnny on a big field trip and do something he’d really love to try. “Mommy I want to surf.” So today in Wrightsville Beach in North Carolina he got to try surfing for the first time. He loved it. Surfers Healing is fantastic because when you are autistic you hear so often all the things you can’t do and with the professional surfers you get to go out and do something cool like surfing. When we got back to where we were staying a fellow traveller was asking about our day and did he enjoy his birthday (he did) when I told her why he had a gigantic smile. She said she had seen lots of kids in the water with surfers and waiting to surf but didn’t know it was a special annual event, let alone for Autistic kids. That made me smile because she just saw a lot of KIDS having fun after some accommodations were made by a lot do kind well meaning people. How awesome is that?
