When E Was 2 by Megen Porter

Megen wrote a beautiful poem about her love for her Autistic daughter and her journey towards acceptance:

 

 

When E was 2

 
 

Before E was 2

Autism was tragic

My baby was beautiful

 
 

Before E was 2

Autism was an epidemic

My baby’s laugh was (is) pure joy

 
 

Before E was 2

Autism was stealing people’s children

My baby was right here, telling me all the letters of the alphabet

 
 

Before E was 2

Autism was a soulless burden

My baby was chubby love incarnate

 
 

After E was 2

Autism was someone else

My baby was delightfully unique

 
 

After E was 2

Autism was coming

My baby was too good for labels

 
 

After E was 2

Autism was here

My baby is Autistic

 
 

Autism is Beautiful.
