An autism diagnosis for your child is not the end of the world. It just means that you have to restructure your ideas about what is "normal." My children have given me a new vision of life filled with unique sounds, thoughts and conversations that bring both laughter and tears. When my oldest son was first diagnosed, someone told me that I didn't know how truly blessed I was. I didn't understand it then, but I certainly do now. I was chosen to be an #autismmom!
