Years since diagnosis
Our children are part of the fastest growing diagnosis in the world. They have autism. Yet we fight amongst ourselves. We judge each other's choices. We call names. We are steadfast in our beliefs that our way is best. We preach acceptance yet don't practice acceptance.
But what would happen if we all banded together? If we worked together, despite our differences? We all have one common goal. We want happy healthy children who grow in to valued productive members of society. Who will be happy and safe long after we are gone. I don't know how we can possibly get our children where we want them to be if we can't band together now.
