Today I want to write about the circumstances around Autism. What I mean is that most of us who have a child diagnosed with Autism have other children as well.
We have two other beautiful daughters. One of our daughters is married and has two sons. We have two grandsons 🙂 Sarah has two nephews 🙂 One day Sarah will be introduced to her nephews Conner and Kyle.
What I am saying is that we have had Autism in our lives for 24 years. Even though we have had Autism in our lives for so many years it has not been the only thing in our lives.
Sarah’s sisters are very accomplished young ladies and they love Sarah very much. The reason why Sarah has not met her nephews yet, is because she has a problem with children’s noises and they live 3,000 miles away. One day she will meet them and they will have a great time together.
We have a broader life now. For so many years Autism was the only focus I had, but not anymore. When my focus shifted to a broader spectrum I was much happier, therefore I had a much more happier family, and now I have been blessed two amazing grandsons. Sarah’s life is much broader also because she has a better understanding in her faith walk and she has more family and friends to love her.
Sarah has asked me from time to time if Conner and Kyle are ok, meaning that they don’t have Autism. I reassure her that they are just fine.
