“…there’s a look to them. Like in the same way there’s a look that those kids with Down syndrome have. It has something to do with their facial expressions.

I admit, I nag the boy. I tell him, “Stay present.” “Stay with me.” “What are you thinking about?” I barrage him with questions when we are headed somewhere public or in public. I want him to look present.
