Have any of you reached the point where you have stopped mourning the life you imagined your child WOULD have had if not for autism?

Have any of you reached the point where you have stopped mourning the life you imagined your child WOULD have had if not for autism?

I remember the exact moment I stopped mourning. About 2 years ago, I was watching a group of mothers at my son's school playground chatting and lamenting about their kids and the typical social drama that they were going through. It hit me that he does not judge people at all in that way and he never will. I admired that about him. And I let go of that imagined child's life and dove… read more

We noticed he was sneaking candy and other sweets. He is not allowed in the kitchen without permission for this reason. Last week he grabbed a handful of little smokies at a Halloween party and snuck to a corner to eat them. I found a partially eaten granola bar under his pillow last week. I constantly find various wrappers in his laundry. Today he… read more
