Autism Awareness Month


April is Autism Awareness Month, didja know? We received an Autism diagnosis for Little Bean about a year and a half ago. This month, I'm over at Confessions of A Non-Domestic Housewife talking about my road to accepting Little Bean's Autism diagnosis.
Autism is Beautiful

Last year, shortly after learning that Little Bean had autism, I wrote a post about grief. I wrote about how I had met a friend for coffee whose daughter also has autism, and about the stark contrast between her and I, between her child and mine. No, her child wasn't necessarily more high functioning, and no this friend didn't have access to better services than Little Bean did at the time.

What she had that I didn't have was something else altogether.

Healing.

Acceptance.

Peace.

And much more.

She was okay.

A year and a half ago, I never thought I'd be okay again.

Hop on over to Angela's blog to read the rest of my story.
