What were you going to be? I mean before you became an Autism momma or Autism daddy? I had gotten my notary liscense and had signed up to take a course for my real estate liscense.
When I look back I don't think I knew that she had Autism yet. I just knew that wasn't where my life was going. I mean who else but us? They can't do it at least not as children.
Now I have a little breathing space. Both the daughter with Autism and the daughter with Aspergers are grown. I don't have to be 'on' all the time. My work and my life has revolved around Autism.
I don't regret it. As a matter of fact I think I'll keep doing THIS.
