The Story Behind Today’s Gift
He offered to watch his baby grand-nephew, so that both parents could work and make ends meet. It seems like the right thing to do. He was in a position to help and he thought it might be fun. After all, nothing keeps you young, like having a little one around.
Right from the start, he loved that baby boy. He took him everywhere and did everything for him. If the boy was a little bit “different” than other kids his age – so what? He loved that boy fiercely all the same. If the boy was crying, his Great-Uncle was there to comfort him. If the boy didn’t know how to do something, his Great-Uncle was a patient teacher ready to guide him. If the boy had his odd quirks, that didn’t bother his Great-Uncle one bit. We’ve all got quirks, so what? Learn to work around them, learn to work within them. That little boy is almost 10 now and calls his Great Uncle, “Pop Pop”. His family now understands that the boy is autistic, but so what? That boy is okay with the world.
The boy’s mom credits her uncle’s love and support. No one else could have treated her son so well. There aren’t words to express how much he means to their family.
