I have had the privilege of knowing Addie Barona for many years now. He has a special kind of autism that makes him full of life and personality. I would love to view the world as Addie does for just one day! He never ceases to make me laugh and I always have a new Addie story! He calls me his half-sister because we have a very similar hair color! :)
One day, Addie called me and said something about a James Bond, and a bunch of other mixed together things I just tuned out in between my intervals of "uh huh." I was driving and went through a dead spot for my cell phone reception and the connection started breaking up. Addie says, "Wait, Amber! Amber! You there? I'm breaking up with you!!"
Haha. I love that kid.
