I love watching them sleep. They are so innocent looking. They are at peace. Their sensory system is at rest, no anxiety, no frustrations. Just sleeping. I wish I could make their world as peaceful when they are awake. I wish I could protect them from the noises that set them off, the fears that they have, and the things that worry them.
I may not be able to protect them through it all my I will certainly love them through it all. And then at bedtime when they fall asleep, I’ll watch the innocence.
