Dear Little Man
One day I’ll set you free, you have my word on that. I’m sorry you feel held back…. I never wanted this.
You see, its not that I don’t trust you because honestly I do. It’s them I don’t trust, those in this world can be so crawl, more than I hope you will ever need to know!
I know you feel it’s so not fair when the boy next door you’re age goes everywhere. You think its because you have Asperger’s that I worry and say I’m holding you back,! Maybe you’re right, but only a bit… I just don’t think it’s safe out there.
Your just 11 years old, still so young, so much to learn. I am your mother and it’s my job to keep you safe from others.
You go to the park the local shops too, but to have you go far would be a worry to myself and others.
I hope that one day you’ll see that everything I do, I do it for you, not me!
As the days tick away and the years grow closer, your Independence and awareness will be much much stronger.
Little man… its difficult for me… I just love you and want to keep you safely near me.
So… please dry your tears, because with time you will see, that all that I do is simply because I care so much for you.
