I know you don’t like to talk, but you gotta do it for her.

Yadriel & Maria appreciation post ✿◕‿◕✿

HE SAID MORE THAN HE DID ALL SEASON. I THOUGHT HE DIDN’T CARE. I THOUGHT HE WAS JUST BEING NICE AND LETTING HIS BABY MAMA SEE THE BABY THAT HE PROBABLY DIDN’T REALLY WANT AND BARELY LOOKED AFTER BUT I WAS FUCKING WRONG. I WAS WRONG ABOUT HIM. HE’S JUST QUIET. THE DUDE IS STOIC AS FUCK AND HE FUCKING LOVES MARIA AND HE LOVES THAT BABY AND IT’S FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE WAY HE GUSHES AND TALKS TO HER LIKE MARIA ASKED HIM TO DO BECAUSE HE WANTS HER TO GROW UP SMART AND LOVED.

But also look at how cute the baby is dressed in each visit. Who did that? Daddy did. But that’s exactly the kind of visual cue that gets lost when he’s getting judged for his bald head, tattoos and stoic (thuggish?) demeanor.

this was actually really important to me because there are tons of reasons for a person being fairly non-verbal. i really liked the portrayal of this relationship because she knows he doesn’t like to talk and it’s not really portrayed as problem for her, it’s not a problem for their relationship, she accepts him for who he is. but she knows that babies need communication for development and he cares about his baby so much that he makes such an effort to do it even though it doesn’t come naturally to him. and it’s so natural in that last scene, it’s so clear he does it all the time and i just really liked this part.

[image description: Three Images. The first is a logo that reads “Morgan’s Wonderland: a special place for special friends.” The second image is a boy in a wheelchair, a girl with crutches, a girl with wings and a boy with a seeing eye dog. The third is headshots of the forementioned children with their names and brief explanations of their super powers. Which read as follows. “Rocket. He has a extreme rocket propelled super chair tha helps him zoom across anything at the speed of sound.” “Jette. She has jet propelled arm braces that help her blast hundreds of feet in the air at lightning speed.” “Morgan. She has big, beautiful wings that enable her to soar through the sky without fear or limitations.” “X-Ray. He has a super dog named Max and his eyewear enables him to see for miles in both X-ray and Night Vision. “]

Did you know that there’s an amusement park specifically designed around the needs of the disabled? Their mascots are a team of disabled superheroes, cut-outs of these four are scattered around the park showcasing them in various stages of their missions. The two pictures of the team came from this review. The ones she took are FAR better than the ones I was able to snap with my crappy phone camera. 

As many of you know, my son is Autistic. No family outing can just happen spontaneously. We have to be as prepared as possible, and anyone who has ever been to a typical amusement park knows that chaotic is putting it nicely. Crowding, the overwhelming noise, and waiting in long lines? It’s not a pretty picture. Morgan’s family had the same kinds of issues.

That’s why they decided to do something about it.

Morgan’s Wonderland is a fully accessible park for disabled children and their families to come enjoy the day together without anyone having to sit out. The staff is fully trained and completely understanding when it comes to physical disabilities, intellectual disabilities, the works. 

I posted some words about this place back when I took my son two summers ago, and we’ve been meaning to go back ever since and plan on doing it soon. I’m just surprised that I haven’t seen people talk about it on my dash at all in all that time. 

Their mission statement: "To provide a safe, clean and beautiful environment free of economic barriers that all individuals, regardless of age, special need or disability, can come to and enjoy."

A one day pass for children 3-10, seniors over 62, and those with military ID is only $10, while general adult admission is just $15. Individuals with special needs are admitted free of charge.

Morgan’s Wonderland is located in San Antonio, TX. These guys are doing some really great things and I think more people need to know about this place.

This looks like a really great thing for children who struggle with going to more typical theme parks. And it’s in San Antonio, too!
