Was not so long ago I posted about how heartbreaking it is for Angel who would love friends to be in an environment where that wasn’t possible.
A friend I made since coming across to Edinburgh messaged me on the back of that post and offered a play date with her daughter who is the same age as Angel, in mainstream with high performing autism. Oh yes please! But of course it’s down to the girls if they want to spend time together.
What a success (and thank you to the wonderful mummy for making it happen!).
The girls started with music dates at our house and progressed to girly play dates with nail polish and make up and yesterday baked together at Angel’s new friend’s house. It’s beautiful, they are so undemanding of each other. If one wants time out the other just carries on, it’s so normal in their world. The smiles on their faces say it all 🙂
I can’t tell you how happy this makes me. My Angel enjoying time with a little friend, the friendship that she has sought for so long.
I know this makes me sound like a dating matchmaker but I’m constantly on the look out for other little friendships for Angel. She’s pretty unique, more verbal than most of the kids in her school, very few girls in school as well, but way less able than mainstream kids. Finding her play date matches is not so easy. Long may this lovely little friendship last! Xx
