Jeff Seeger

Jeff's life was one of mystery and faith combined. He spent the first twelve years of his life locked in the mystery of autism with no communication. Then one day he saw a TV show on facilitated communication and immediately wanted to know more about it. This communication method unlocked his world. He was able to go from a Trainable Mentally Impaired room to regular high school classes. Communication and home work remained a challenge for him, but he was able to prove how bright he really was.

One of his first requests after learning facilitated communication was to be baptized in our church. Although we all felt terrible that this bright funny young man remained in silence all those years, he had spent that time developing such a close walk with his Lord. He had not really been in silence at all, but been with the best friend he could ever have!

The biggest tragedy of Jeff’s life was that he could not control the autism. He thought once he could communicate he would be "normal" and then one day he realized that who he felt like inside was not who anyone else saw on the outside. His two goals in life were to share Christ's love with all around him and to find a way to cure the autism he hated so much. His brain tissue donation was his last act at trying to meet that goal. We are so grateful for the dignity and respect this site shows to all those bravely trying to bring about his goal.

 

NORMAL

I DREAM OF BEING NORMAL
I TRY MY VERY BEST
BUT TRYING TO BE NORMAL
CAN'T HAPPEN WITH THE REST.

I DREAMED OF BEING NORMAL
I RETARDED BE NO MORE
1 TRIED TO GROW MORE NORMAL
BUT TOO MUCH WENT BEFORE.

I DREAMED OF BEING NORMAL
THE BEST THAT I COULD BE
BUT IT WAS AWFUL HARD BEING NORMAL
WHY CAN'T YOU ALL SEE?

I'M TIRED OF BEING NORMAL
AUTISTIC'S WHAT I AM
WHY CAN'T WE ALL BE NORMAL
BEING JUST AS I AM?

I DREAMED OF BEING NORMAL
FAR AS WE ALL COULD TRY
BUT GAVE UP BEING NORMAL
NOW MUST I SAY GOODBYE?
