Overdue pics of Rayyan's party in school about two months ago...hehe.. Anyway, even though we had a party for him at home, we wanted to do another one in school because we know that many children have their parties in school too and we want him to have the same experience. And we were really glad we did it :D
It was great to see him surrounded by his classmates. When I came, many of them came up to me and told me how much they like him. They are aware that he's 'different' but they still accept him, love him and the best part is, they PROTECT him. It was so heartwarming to see how loving and non-judgemental these children are.
I am so thankful that he has classmates such as this boy by the name of Alden who is always looking out for him. When I came, Alden told me how much Rayyan likes to hug him and indeed, Rayyan keeps hugging him! Hubby told me that even during naptime, Rayyan is always with Alden. I am glad that Rayyan has found a good friend in school.
There is also this girl by the name of Sharlene who helps Rayyan a lot, making sure Rayyan does the tasks given and that he follows instructions. She is such a responsible and helpful girl and I can still remember the conversation she had with me when we were there...
Sharlene : Rayyan's mummy, I love Rayyan you know.
Me : Is it?
Sharlene : Ya, I love him but I don't know if he loves me or not...
Hahahaha... Isn't she cute???!
I pray that Rayyan will always be loved by his classmates, teachers and those around him. I pray that as he grows, people around him will understand and accept him, autism and all. I pray that he in turn, will be a good friend to those around him. Amin...
The theme for his party in school... Angry Bird!
