Morgan and I recently visited the TRIAD department at Vanderbilt Kennedy Center. We are participating in a research study for young adults on the autism spectrum who are transitioning out of school services. We hope to learn as much as we can about how our options measure up as we step into this new chapter of our lives.
While we were at TRIAD, Morgan did a little measuring of her own . She thoroughly enjoyed playing games with the examiner, who’s name was Alison. Since her sister is also named Allison, She found a unique way to keep them separate. Morgan now refers to her new friend as “Taller Allison” and her sister as “Smaller Allison”. Her sister has never been thrilled about being vertically challenged, especially since Morgan surpassed her a bit in height, so I can’t wait to hear her response to her new name. 😉
When I was growing up, I remember my dad backing me up against the wall and making a mark over my head to measure my height. Measuring and sizing up situations is important. It’s a great way to see progress. When measuring people, I think what really matters is the size of their heart.
As June comes and we celebrate Fathers Day, I’m thankful for my dad, and my girls’ dad. They’re a couple of guys with really BIG hearts. 😉
Happy Fathers Day to dads in all shapes and sizes. This song is for you. 😉
Until Next Time,
Know The Hope!
