For Riley, who’s secretly been reading my blog on her iPod. And who sometimes feels sad that she can’t swim as well as other kids her age. And who sometimes wishes she never had autism.

I love you. You are perfect.

    I hope she reads the comments, too, so that she can realize it’s not only her mom who feels this way.

    Maybe someday Riley will know how many lives she has touched because of your blog. So many of us have watched her grow up here, and feel like we know her, and think she is awesome. We cheer her on, and love her.

    Dear Michelle……and Riley, in her comment, Amber said it all for me. That I have come to know your strength and beauty and perfection, Riley, through this blog. You are, as my great-niece says about life, “awesome.” Yes, you are absolutely awesome! You have a deep-down strength that gives me courage to meet my own life. Thank you and peace.

    Hi, Riley! I took my 16-year-old swimming today in the baby pool (it was 0 ft. 8 in. at the deepest point). He squatted because he was too afraid to sit all the way down. Your mom is right – you’re perfect.
