    Thank you, just….thank you. We didn’t get the diagnosis until 8 but we knew. Our son has autism. And you know the saying, if you have met one child with autism, then you have met ONE child with AUTISM. I have had all of the days you so perfectly described so I am grateful to know that I am not alone, not the only one. Thank you.

    I read this in the book Friday and have not stopped crying since. It is a beautiful letter and I could have written the same to myself, there are so many parallels. As difficult as it was to read, I thank you for writing it because my take away was hope, acceptance and unconditional love. Look forward to the rest of the book. Cheers!

    Your posts always make me tear up, but at the same time feel not so alone. My son is 4 and has only had an “official” diagnosis for a little over a year because we couldn’t get anyone to take us seriously (I didn’t know that I could call EI myself!), but otherwise, your journey sounds so much like ours. Thank you for your poignant posts.

    My son was diagnosed at four and we thought the “signs” we were seeing were from him being sick as a newborn. Thank you so much for your courage and honesty in writing about your experiences. It is nice to know other families experience the same ups and downs we do. I love your blog and thanks again!!!!

    Carrie, I stumbled across your blog after the abc news story. I saw you picture and thought, “that looks like Jack’s mom.” I worked at the daycare in NY in Jack’s room when you received the diagnosis for Jack. He will always hold a special place in my heart and I am so happy to read about how you are all doing.
