Okay, please don't read the above if you are the parent of a child with autism who is feeling overly stressed right now as I was yesterday when I read it!!
I am not 100% sure about even re-posting the story here, but I feel a huge need to talk about it.
The link is not to the main news story, but to a blogger's thoughts about it. She gives some really good advice and insight that I thought was worth sharing.
I also want to tell my friends who are reading this--especially those of you who do not have children with special needs--that you make life easier for me every day that you are
here for me, listening and offering encouragement. Sometimes I wonder why y'all stick around. Even I get tired of hearing myself talk about autism sometimes. And yet you stay and you love me for me.
(well, and I have excellent taste in wine and music, but that's a whole other point-ha!)
But, seriously...thank you. I couldn't do this without you.
