Imagine you are four years old and you are told that you were adopted.
You have autism and no one knows yet.
You have above average problem solving capabilities.
You know who your birth mother is and you have met many of your birth family.
This is how our son rationalized his situation:
He told us that he came here from Jupiter with his silly uncle.
He will be returning soon to live with his birth family on Jupiter.
First he and his silly uncle will have to fix their space ship.
But, they need to find spare parts.
Then they can repair the ship and leave.
He says he’ll miss you, but he needs to return to his birth family.
Now imagine having your four year old holding your face with both his little hands, looking you straight in the eyes trying to tell you his story.
You can not laugh because you know he is very serious and he will get upset.
He sounds like one special kid, and he has quite the imagination. You are lucky to have him in your life.
Kids each have unique ways to process their world around them. They also love being imaginative. You are a supportive parent. 🙂
Kids have the most active imaginations. It's truly amazing and who's to say he's not from Jupiter! 🙂
