    I read your blog faithfully and can so relate as a grandmother of a boy with autism.

    Wow, is all I can say Carrie! As a disability advocate for our church, I’m going to share your blog with others.

    I am a nurse practitioner, and a physician assistant educator, and a mom. I stumbled on this blog (I believe by divine intervention) and have passed it on to multiple women whom I believe would benefit from the raw honesty. I am SO thankful for the chronicle of this amazing, terrifying, awe-inspiring, tear-filled journey and feel truly blessed to be able to see into your world. Thank you, Carrie, for your heart and your honesty and the depth of your love. Prayers and hugs heading your way (again). Best, G

    Oh Carrie. I am exactly where you are and so grateful that you are able to explain it, because sometimes I don’t know where I am. Thank you!

    I feel you pain, love, anxiety and hope for the future. My autistic son turned 18! I’m afraid for his future. He’ll graduate this year and even though we will keep him in the school system until he’s 21, it won’t be the same, school has become his community. Who will be his community when he’s out of school? Work? Probably not. I’d he had his own way he’d watch sports on TV all day so he can “referee” them. Thank you already for your posts. They are helpful. Love, Sharon

    I love your blog. My autistic son is 19 and just started work as a package handler for FedEx. He says loading the packages in the trucks is like Tetris. He comes home tired and talkative at the end of his shift. I don’t know if he can keep this job, or how long it will last, but he is proud and we (his family) are so proud of him.
