Colton Walter Jorgensen.
You are 12 1/2 years old. You are the shortest, which makes your brothers happy. You are about 5'3". You are diagnosed with, buy not defined by, Autism, ADHD, Anxiety, and some learning disabilities. Sometimes navigating this very busy world is hard for you. But, you love people. You find the good in everyone. You believe that everyone you meet is your "friend." You worry about everyone and are very compassionate. You like to lift people up and make them feel good about themselves.
You are very curious. You love animals, especially horses. You always have. You love to read and to color. You love to be outside. You love to ride bikes, or anything else that moves. You love to eat and you love all food. You have never been picky. You love games and puzzles, movies and funny shows. You love music and love to sing in the middle of the night.
Thursday night, you found a blindfold and walked around the house for a good half hour with the blindfold on - making your way through all of the "obstacles." You talked to your imaginary friends as you did it. You were quite content just walking around in the dark.
In a few months, you begin junior high. You're going to be just fine. Brothers will be there and I will always be praying for you and cheering you on. You are a light, and a very important piece to our family puzzle. We love you and are so grateful to have your smile in our family.
