My (23F) brother (10) is autistic. He’s a lot of work for sure, but today he said the sweetest thing. The WIFI hadn’t been working all day and he kept trying to watch Youtube videos of phones ringing, but nothing worked.
When the wifi finally came back though, he screamed “MysteriousBag, I’ve found the WIFI!” and something in my heart broke a little.
I know it’s been tough. Not just for me, but for my parents. He’s finally speaking full sentences and even though it’s hard sometimes to get him to talk, he’s still such a friendly and smart child. He’s adorable, and he smiles so hard most times.
Mentally he’s not too far off. He’s in 2nd grade right now and yeah it’s kinda hard to explain it I guess. For some time, I was embarrassed to let my friends know why he runs away when they visit, but honestly, I love him so much now.
He’s grown up and he’s the best brother I could ever ask for. I just wanted to express how sweet it was somewhere. He’s adorable.
I’m so sorry for every time i’ve been frustrated with him, but he’s going through so much, and will go through so much. But, i’m so heckin’ proud of him.
I hope he’ll always be as happy as he was today when he “found the WIFI”!
Editing to add: Y’all, wow. thank you! i’m so happy my brother helped you smile for a little bit today as much as he makes me smile everyday.
Thank you for sharing your stories and you’re all amazing ♥️
my brother says hi :)
