Adam’s Favorite Song

Filed Under (Adam) by Estee on 18-05-2010

For over a month now, Adam sings this song a lot to me. It’s so ironic, isn’t it? My “little guy,” as he now calls himself, is beginning to talk more, is in to show-and-tell, and even playing the “teacher” — asking me to answer HIS questions (as if I didn’t already know that he is the Master and I am the student), and his voice has grown louder when he talks as if he is saying HEAR ME, HEAR ME… HEAR ME!!! When he sings this song to me, I imagine him thinking of how indeed when he grows older, he knows he will grow stronger.

Watch out world. Adam is coming!

About Me


ESTÉE KLAR

I’m a PhD candidate at York University, Critical Disability Studies, with a multi-disciplinary background in the arts as a curator and writer. I am the Founder of The Autism Acceptance Project (www.taaproject.com), and an enamoured mother of my only son who lives with the autism label. I like to write about our journey, critical issues regarding autism in the area of human rights, law, and social justice, as well as reflexive practices in (auto)ethnographic writing about autism.
