We always envisioned having a ‘normal’ child but what is normal anyway? William is far from normal; he is extraordinary
We are just an ordinary married couple raising an extraordinary child who happens to have autism.
We want to share our families journey onto the Autism Spectrum, from the very beginning to diagnosis and beyond.
It was difficult for us to find any resource other than from parents who were further along in their journey so we thought we would document our journey; all the emotions, the research, the appointments and the heartache.
If one parent who is worried about their child missing milestones, one relative worried about how their family will cope or one person who just doesn’t quite understand reads this and either feels less alone or more educated then we know we have done a wonderful thing.
Some of the things we write about are raw and are often posted during that wave of anger and upset that comes with uncertainty so please forgive us for any spelling mistakes or when the F Bomb slips out. 🙊
