    Carrie, I admire your candid admission to daydreaming about what life might’ve been like if Jack hadn’t been diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Just the fact that you can admit it shows how far you’ve come. Thanks for sharing your innermost thoughts with us. It makes us realize we’re all in this together.

    Carrie, you are sharing every spectrum mom’s thoughts and putting it out there for others, making them feel less alone in this journey. That is a huge service to everyone! When I saw the picture of Jack on the swing it made me think about my son John, who still loves to swing at age 36. We have a glider in the porch which looks a little more appropriate and fulfills his need for movement. Raising a child with autism is not for sissies. We learn to have a tough skin in time and we will never stop worrying about what happens when we are no longer here for them. Believe me, it is a constant thought for someone my age. My mantra is to stop worrying about something I have no control over. Wish I could. Hang in there, you are doing an amazing job.
