I am the Parent of a Child with Autism


I am the parent of a child with autism.  I am a warrior. I am a fighter. I am an advocate. I am strong. I am resilient. I can do it all.  I am a parent of a child with autism.  I am weak, I am tired. I am afraid. I am helpless. I am depressed. I cannot do it all.  I feel both, I think both, I behave as both. I am both.  I am often asked about my experiences as a parent as it relates to a child with autism. The truth of the matter is that there are two sides to this journey. There are days I wake and am hopeful for the future, that I am prepared for whatever the day may bring and strong enough to handle the physical and mental challenges of dealing with a child with a disability.
