Let me start by saying good morning. You are probably wondering how a non-verbal kid with autism says hello. But, I say it with my smile. My smile gives me a voice. It doesn’t need words. My smile says hello and goodbye. It says how are you and I’m happy to see you. Oh, it says that I like you. Long ago [before I was adopted], I didn’t have any teeth. They were mostly rotted out because all I ever drank was fruit punch. And my mom never brushed them. But now my teeth are strong and white. So, I have a good smile and I like to use it. That is all for today.
