    I think it is a wonderful present! I'm sure he likes it.
    Just out of curiosity, does he have special talents. I friend of DD's son has aspergers and he picks up musical instruments and it is amazing how he can play them, without any lessons. They calm him very much. It is truly a God given talent.

    You are wrong, it was the best!!! It is so hard to find/make gifts for a child with aspergers that they will love. You made him a gift that really made him happy, his smile tells it all.

    Love it! He does look happy to have it, and probably will look that way when he snuggles under it for the rest of his life. Great gift!

    He is very talented musicaly but doesn't like to either play or sing. He is very good in math. When he was in second grade he had spent the night with us and I was taking him home to catch the bus (they live about 8 miles from us. He was upset that I was rushing him and in the car he looked at my speedomater and said. If you keep driving this speed we will be at my house at 7:05 and the buss doesn't come until 7:15!!! Right now is in 9th grade and performing at 2nd year college. He will go far if we can keep him out of jail. He just doesn't get social skills. Often he challenges teachers and it sounds like he is being defiant and in fact he is just stating as he see's it. We are so luck to have teachers that see past the 'oddness" and see is potential and kind heart!! After working with him I believe our prisons are full of kids like him!!! He won't break rules but he doesn't always understand rules. Once he knows it is a rule he will obay it but often we say "because I said so"!! He doesn't get respect of adults. I tell him he has a loose wire in his brain and I am working to connect it!!!

    What a wonderful gift! I'd have to say your GS likes it by the smile on his face.

    Your grandson does look very happy with the quilt you made for him. It turned out really nice. I understand how you feel about your Mom. Your sweet story made my day - thank you for sharing it!
