What does it mean to interact?
What constitutes interaction or communication?
Is it a conversation? What if one is unable to speak or Sign?
Is it a look? A touch? A feeling? Or the combination of all three?
I miss my son very much and I don’t know if I should feel thankful for what we had or thankful for what we now have. After much thought I realize what I miss is not necessarily holding him or laughing with him or playing as a family.
It’s the interaction, the “back and fourth” part of communication, the acknowledgement of one another’s presence. I guess my heart is trying to reassure my brain that even though he is temporarily unable to respond; he does not feel alone, or afraid and he is aware of my love and senses my presence…. I don’t know, I hope and pray he does.
