    Oh, Heather, I’m so sorry. As always, you render the experience with such astonishing empathy. I hope Aidan will be able to heal after such a loss. The tenderness of your face on his — well, I can’t imagine a better gift. Thank you for this most inspiring story.

    I am so impressed with the gym story and so sorry for the loss of his teacher. It is just unbearable at times to not know FOR SURE….do they understand and when the answer seems to be yes, then the question becomes, HOW MUCH? We have just started assuming Tess understands everything we say. We could be right, we could be wrong but at least we know in our hearts that we are giving her the benefit of the doubt and that is a powerful thing.

    Maybe Aiden, like me, knows, somehow, that death is not a bad thing, a scary thing or a sad thing except for those people left behind who don’t feel that way. It just is. His teacher is at perfect rest. And maybe, just maybe, you have found the silver lining to Aiden’s life if he doesn’t understand always all the sadness contained in it. It’s a freedom all its own. Love you…love this post.
