wouldnt change anything
My daughter is autistic. I admit it took a long time of coming to acceptance of this reality in our life. I have been asked many times if I could change anything and truthfully I wouldn't. This disability being present in our family has taught me so much about life. After spending countless hours studying autism, I do know I can face anything that comes our way. Yes, there were times when she was younger I was doubting she was ever gonna walk or talk. People kept telling me to slow myself down when thinking about this. My belief changed when she did start to walk at 3 1/2 years old. It's been daunting as a single parent to shoulder the load. Once I clearly understood what I was dealing with I decided to dig down deep and help my daughter with everything. As I did this I found I was getting to the stage of acceptance of my child. I wouldn't change a thing about her because she is unique and I like that. The connection we share is stronger than ever. I am now helping other families going through the same thing by sharing my experiences and trying to make them feel better and telling them that It does get better and it just takes patience.
