Pensive Aspie

http://pensiveaspie.wordpress.com

Labels? I'm a mother, a wife, a Christian, a supporter of equality, a nurse, a new knitter, a bibliophile (book lover), a fan of Sci-Fi but not a fanatic, and an Aspie. As an Aspie (person with Asperger's), I blog because I feel my voice needs to be heard. I believe in advocacy. I'm tired of hearing about awareness. I want to hear about ACCEPTANCE. I currently work two jobs: I work at a hospital as a post-partum nurse and in a Pediatrician's office. Although I currently do it unofficially, my goal is to someday become a counselor/advisor to parents of children with Asperger's. They aren't broke. They aren't wrong. They don't need to be fixed. They need love, understanding and acceptance - just like any other child. It is my goal that I can continue to help parents see this. Different does not mean less than.
