It’s all in the feels
Living in an apartment complex you always get new neighbors and we can be loud at times so I made a sign letting people know our son is autistic and things that come with being a special needs family.

This is beautiful! I love it! (Partly because i’m Autistic, but also because the paint while drippy, is still in the shape of a puzzle piece!)
Good job!Love
