Our children are gifts. Some of our children, like those with autism or ADHD or OCD, may be wrapped in many layers of wrapping paper. It is our job to try to remove several or all of those layers to get at the true gift of the child inside. But it is also our job to remember that each child is a gift, whether wrapped in many layers or none, we give thanks for that gift every day.
