At What Point Do We Start Living Life Again?

‘Thursday Morning Ramblings: ‘At What Point Do We Start Living Life Again?’ As a mom all I’ve ever wanted to do was to help my kid. And once we got the Autism label it felt like the world was saying…’Well, your kids autistic. Good luck. Try some stuff. It probably won’t work. I wish you the best but I am going to make it damn near impossible for you to help your son.’ So, I fought blind for six years. I carved our own path. I never gave up. And I did it all with Cooper at the center of every decision. And in tow behind me was a four year old, my husband, my family, my career, my friends and my sanity. And the amount that we all had to sacrifice to help this little boy is unbelievable. And there are days I ask myself…’At what point do we start living life again?’ #autism (Obligatory, I LOVE MY SON)
