So one of the most amazing things about raising our special needs son Andrew is the joy he finds in the things most of us overlook or take for granted. His laughter and unfiltered happiness is absolutely contagious and we can never seem to get enough of his smile.
Tonight he discovered the fort that his daddy built for his brother Ian yesterday. It’s been up in the room they share for two whole days now, but it wasn’t until this evening that Andrew really noticed it and went inside to check it out.
The video below says it all. This kid loves life and reminds us to take time to enjoy the simple pleasures. Happiness doesn’t have to be complicated. Sometimes all you need is a makeshift fort.
