    Your boys will grow up to be wonderful men because they have been raised in in a loving,caring, supportive home. As the grandmother to a 12 yeaold autistic grandson, I look forward to all your blogs. I just wish my Ellis could meet your Jack because they have so much in common! Hang in there and rejoice in the conquered battles, and please know you are not alone in your struggles and admiration for all the ” heroes” that are put in our precious children’s paths.

    Be careful. There are a lot of unplanned pregnancies in these years as we yearn for those babies

    HI Carrie- I enjoy reading your posts also. You are living the dream. Kids everywhere. Snacks half eaten, dishes always dirty, mud on the newly clean floor, and so much chaos. Beautiful chaos. Someday, you will miss these trying times more than you know.
    My autistic son Andrew is almost 24 yrs old. He still loves with us. I love it most days, until I hear about how my siblings kids are all out on their own. I love it until, I learn my girlfriends kids have moved out and have began their own lives. But yet I realize my son is different. He is struggling with his own demons, trying to understand the autism inside him. It’s not an easy life for him. I can’t understand it cause I don’t live it. I can only love the man he is and accept his faults. Yes, there are still dirty socks left inn his bathroom, used dishes and drink glasses left in his bedroom, and the list goes on… Yet. I’m loving every minute of the time I have left with him. I know he won’t be here forever.
    Enjoy these glorious days with your boys. They won’t last for long.

    I feel comforted, knowing this happens in other homes!
