"Thanks for sharing. I always imagine what life will be like for him at school...and I pray that he is fully prepared. Maybe you could try talking to her about how to explain her differences to her peers. That might help. She will be just fine! Hope…"

First grade

I have a hard time accepting that I am here now. This is farther than I thought we would be and also very far behind where I first dreamed I would be.

My friends that I made at infants and toddlers social group are still connected. We still get together for lunch and to celebrate birthdays and holidays. We talk about IEPs and therapy's.

Like I have talked to other moms and seen a lot of other children but to read this book that so bluntly illustrates what my life has been like. It is just so…See More

Better is not good enough.

At the age of 18 months D was sitting in the middle of the floor screaming for hours on end. I thought that I was the worst mother in the world. I had taken all these hours of training on Child care and development, spent years taking care of other peoples children. And yet I didn't know what to do about my own child. I couldn't conect with her. She lived in her own world and it hurt so much when I could see that that world wasn't nice to her.It was a secret. We never went out, we never had…See More
