Abria, 3, has autism. Abria is Zoe Dodd’s sister, and the reason Zoe sees Abria’s guardian angel, Matthias. Though Abria can’t speak, a peek into her mind is revealing and not unlike other three-year-olds.
I like to run. Air blows around me. I like it when everybody chases me. Daddy looks funny when he chases me. I laugh.
I like to climb. I feel free when I’m high up. I can see better when I stand on things. My favorite things to climb are chairs, tables, stairs and windows. Mom screams when I climb into windows. She screams when I stand on the stairs. The noise makes me laugh.
Sometimes, Mom, Dad and Zoe and Luke yell at me when I run and climb. I don’t know why. I like to run. The wind blows around me. When I climb, I can see better.
Everyone sees me when I climb.
I want the chan in the kitchen. It’s pretty with lights. I like to stare at the lights, they sparkle. I want to touch them. I want the chan.
One day I ran and found Matthias. He sparkles like the chan. He smiles at me and never yells at me. I feel good around him.
When Matthias is here, Zoe sparkles like the chan.
I want the chan now.
