We could easily pass as the typical ‘have it together’ suburban family if you just looked at our smiling faces. With three cute kids and a dog, a really handsome husband, lots soccer games and a golf membership, we fit in nicely.
Yet, we face mighty struggles in the everyday due to one son’s high functioning autism. This is our plight to help others understand what life is like with autism in the hopes that we can not just be aware and accepting of each other’s differences, but work to include them in our lives.
Maybe with insight into our little insignificant world, we can begin to understand that we all face challenges, most of them hidden. And perhaps with that common understanding, we can adjust and grow.
I am honored that you would take time to read.
