Autism happens ... and when it happens, your child and your life are turned upside down. One day, your son or daughter seems like every other child; the next, you notice a change. Sometimes the change starts with sublety -- behavior isn't what it normally is or responses just are out of synch and off; or it may come on like a tornado, sudden, without warning.
You weep for yourself.
You weep for your child.
You feel so alone.
Your son, your daughter, isn't the same little person he or she was yesterday. You cry out in anger. You are in a spiral of disbelief ... how could this have happened to you, your family, your child? You hungrily seek out reasons why and begin the never-ending quest for answers and cures. Your child is lost and so are you. Will it ever end?
Parents and families need help. A word of hope, an insightful story, gentle and kind words, sage advice from another who isn't a doctor or therapist who sounds like someone reading from a script ... someone who is just like you. A parent is the answer; a parent who is living through the same fears that you are. A parent who gets exactly what you are going through because she's going through it too.
Author Pamela Bryson-Weaver is that parent. Her Daily Reflections and insights are just what you, your heart, your child and family need.
