this one's for you, c.s.

There are fb 'rooms' (a.k.a. pages) for people in the FX community. they are closed groups visible by invite only, for our own privacy. But without using any names... there is a beautiful, beautiful post I feel compelled to share...

A mom of 22 year old son with FX, posted about their new neighbors who have two 8-year-old girls. Her son helped them get their scooter back from their older brother who was... you know, being an older brother. So later on the two girls thanked her son & asked the mom why he sometimes flaps his hands when he gets excited, & acts differently. The mom told them he has fragile x. So one of the girls said, "What's that? Something that makes him be nice & help people?"

I cried when I read that.
