    And then you might have a son who does not have autism who isn’t graduating from high school next week. There’s no guarantee.

    You and Joe are indeed making up a happy ending. One that involves loving and laughing and crying and zooming. Way better than anything on a pre-conceived menu, anyway. Nope, there is no guarantee; but, there is every assurance in your desire to provide any tools you can to help him get his very own happy ending.

    Thank you!! I needed to hear that ….. yes I have kiddos to who are “normal” and then one who is autistic … the normal one’s have a choice to graduate from high school the special needs children who are high functioning enough to know that their peers are but they are not is what hurts. I will say I have said “why me” I have a down syndrome twin brother I’ve been through this kind of thing; why my own child why do I have to worry like my parents do… Then I look at what the big guy (yes I believe in God) sees a family of siblings that will take care of that brother and love him and married spouses who knew that one day he will possibly live with us in our home with our children and I smile because I am raising the very same type of little people that I turned out to be. Compassionate, loving children who look and show people respect regardless of their disability and that is my happy ending because it takes all kinds to make the world go round. No one is promised tomorrow but we can be happy if we choose to be and don’t blame me if I want to be “woe is me” when my kiddo can’t sit to have his teeth cleaned. LOL So although that little statement is said I do choose more happy days but I am allowed to have a gloomy day too…. and still be greatful for the life that I have and the little lives I gave life to. Thanks for saying what most of us want to say but never doooooo…. Love your blog!
