    Carrie,
    You once walked up to our family in Unos Pizza in Concord, NH and introduced yourself. We are a family living with Bedford, NH also affected by autism. My son, Nathan, is 15 years old and my daughter, Jaiden, is 14. I would love to connect with you on a personal level sometime, as I assure you, we are kindred spirits of sorts, as ASD moms. I especially related to today’s post and would like you to know that you are not alone in your feelings, your hurt, your celebrations of the little things, your hope…Please feel free to reach out to me on email and I will send you my phone number. God bless you and may you be encouraged and assured that life with autism, my friend, is a precious platform, not a prison. : ) – Vicki Sotack

    Your words are those that I cling onto Carrie, as my granddaughter Maddy (10), whom we care for along with her sister and brother (autism free) awakes each day with her autistic/adhd working mind, and mine trying so hard to accept that which it appears will not change and wanting so much to be looking for a little something that might just be that turning point on the horizon of hope. Love them we do, but accepting that this world in our mind is not theirs, it’s hard….so we just keep shouting when the frustration looms, guilt steps in and then regret for words said. I cry for her and love her and WILL always hold onto hope that her life will bring her happy times even if I can’t see it. Sending warm wishes that you may enjoy every time, no matter how short, you feel jack has brought a smile to your face.
