AMBASSADOR = AUTISM = ART

Thomais, the Ambassador of Autism Tourism, is in waiting mode…

She knows NYC is waiting…

She knows she has to wait…

She knows she is curious and anxious with all the unknowns…

Her main question: Are we going to stay in a hotel without an elevator? I’m working it…

To appease the wait and anxiety… Art is our go to! Art is our savior! Art is that spectacular tool that eases my job as a parent!

In 2014 she was channeling her Lady Liberty… It was a delight to see my daughter, with a diagnosis that is not 100% understood, showing her creativity and appreciation for beauty.

She knows NYC is in the works. Her drawing of Lady Liberty above is all her making. I just asked her, draw what you see in your brain and feel in your heart.

Greece is a must in a future trip.

A photo of the Temple of Sounion was the source of inspiration!

Her Greek roots empowering her days and thanks to her dad reminiscing about times she does not remember. Her mind was not capable of building memories.  Her mind now now can…

 

And she’s also asking when will she go to Egypt, Brazil and Paris… I tell her in due time we will.

Last week – transition time… China and Japan have been added to her list!

She also asked, when are we going to Rainbow land. I tell her, that one we can visit any time you want to… Just grab a brush, paint and make it happen!
