My Gift Level 9999: Chapter 46 – Saar’s Journey to Independence

As I continue to share my experiences as a single mother embracing autism, I want to offer a more personal perspective on how I've created a structured and predictable environment for Saar over the past 17 years.

As a mother, watching your child grow is one of the most heartwarming experiences. But when your child has autism, every milestone and every achievement feels like they’ve leveled up in a grand game of life. As Saar turns 19 today, I reflect on his journey and how we’ve arrived at “My Gift Level 9999: Chapter 46.”

From the moment Saar was born, I knew he was special. He would intensely focus on patterns, his unique way of processing the world around him, and his unparalleled dedication to the things he loved. By age five, he was already showing signs of high-functioning autism.

While many might see autism as a challenge, we chose to see it as Saar’s unique gift. And every year, every experience became a chapter in his story.

Chapter 46 has been particularly transformative. As Saar stepped into his 19th year, he showcased an independence I could have only dreamed of. Whether it was mastering public transportation, getting his first part-time job, or building relationships with peers, Saar was leveling up.

My Gift Level 9999” is not just a catchy phrase; it signifies Saar’s exceptional abilities. The ‘9999’ represents the infinite potential within him and every individual with autism. Each chapter in his life, including the 46th, is a testament to his resilience, strength, and unique perspective.

Saar started a digital art course this year, and his creations left us in awe. He found solace in expressing himself through vivid colors and intricate patterns, often saying that his art reflected how he perceived the world – a tad bit differently, yet wonderful.

As we celebrate Saar’s 19th birthday, “Chapter 46” in our journey, I urge every parent to remember: our children, whether neurotypical or with autism, have gifts that are waiting to be unveiled. It’s our role to support, encourage, and cheer them on as they unlock their own “Level 9999.”

To every parent reading this, embrace your child’s unique journey. Every day, every challenge, every triumph is a chapter in their ever-evolving story. And just like Saar’s Chapter 46, immense beauty and potential are waiting to be discovered.


My name is Adi, and I am the proud parent of Saar, a lively 17-year-old who happens to have autism.

He is also a budding pianist and enjoys painting. However, his world is somewhat distinct. Loud sounds can be overwhelming, sudden changes can be unsettling, and understanding emotions can be challenging.
