I see so much on social feeds. We share our joys and our sadness. We support each other and encourage strangers too! Life can be tough at times for all of us. However I firmly believe, If you have your health you have it all, that’s the true reality of life! We don’t take anything with us, we just leave memories..
Life is tough for us all, and we all have a story to tell. I can only share with you all my personal experiences. We’ve shared our autism journey to encourage others to understand what a day in the life of a family living with autism is like in the hope that having acceptance & awareness of autism will in some way make it easier on all of us.
I’m not inspirational or a super woman. I’m just her mum and I would move heaven & earth to make it better, to find a cure.
Just like everyone I have moments of despair, moments of hating this journey, moments I want it all to go away. Like everyone else I moan too! A healthy child is a true blessing. I watched my child hit moments of despair unable to tell me what’s wrong. I can’t explain truly how that feels but all I truly hope for is more compassion and a better understanding of disabilities. Then and only then can we truly make a difference to so many others on a journey they never planned!
When your children are still asking for xmas presents, spare a thought for the parents who would love to have that moment. 19 years in and I’m still waiting for that moment! I don’t know if I’ll ever have it, but we have faith, hope and unconditional love!
Thank you for supporting autism awareness & acceptance. We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and an extremely Happy New Year!
