Today is Autism Awareness Day. Everyday is Autism day for our family.
This is by far one of the biggest challenges we've had to face & one of the hardest things we'll ever have navigate as parents.
As hard as it's been for us managing the many 'journeys' special needs families have to, this 'label', or as we like to call it, this 'insight' has provided much needed relief & validation to a little girl who has always felt different & given her much understanding into how & why she thinks & feels the way she does & how she responds & behaves the way she does.
As parents, we are also cherishing the gifts, the beauty & uniqueness that Autism empowers our daughter.
This has not & is not an easy road for our family - but we have surrounded ourselves with positive support & have so much hope. Most importantly, we know we will do everything in our power to ensure a fulfilling, enriching, meaningful, successful & brilliant future for our daughter, our light.
