Here is what I want you to know if nothing else.
1. Daniel is the coolest kid ever.
2. Daniel has Autism
3. Daniel is not Autism
I start with these things because when I talk to people about Daniel and autism they tend to lean into common misconceptions about what they have heard and read about autism and although I don't shy away from educating on how autism effects Daniel, I also just want to skip right over it and let them experience him because really autism explains some of his behaviors but what they learn as they get to know him is he loves people well, he is tender and kind, and he is the best storyteller. I want people to know him for all of who God made him to be, because Daniel unlike anyone I know reflects God's heart and love for people.
