I See a Light

I See a Light

I feel so grateful for the progress my son has made in the last few months.  I see a light at the end of the tunnel.  And I wanted to share a few of the things I have done to help him.  As I mentioned previously, we pulled him out of public school and started teaching him at home.  He was being bullied pretty severely at school.  He is only 8 and did not know that I wasn’t aware of what was going on.  He also didn’t know he could go to anyone else for help.  So he shut down.

Heaven Helped Me

We recently had a challenge at church to do Family History and focus on the temple often for a month.  So I put down the novels, and picked up my laptop.  But my family is all pretty into family history.  And I thought it was all done.  I couldn’t find records to go any further back.  So I said a prayer.  And I got this feeling that if I couldn’t go backward, I should go forward. So from my latest known ancestor I started finding the siblings, spouses, and parents of everyone I could.  By the time the month was over I had found 100 people!  Then I put my laptop down and didn’t think about it again. Until yesterday…

The Importance of Addressing every Diagnosis

The Importance of Addressing every Diagnosis

I’m not sure about you, but my son has more than one diagnosis.  His doctor listed High Functioning Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, and Anxiety, in that order.  When I first heard his diagnosis I was so overwhelmed.  I cried, because I was so sad that my sweet baby boy would have to go through such a trial in his life.  I knew this was a lifelong thing.  You don’t outgrow autism.  You learn how to cope with it.  You learn to function in spite of the trial.  But it doesn’t go away.
