This is just a little note to say THANK YOU! to everyone who reached out to me and my husband, to offer their kind words of encouragement! It has been so comforting to know that other people with Autism are happy and flourishing! It gives me hope and sense of relief that all of this hard work we are doing with my son will pay off for him. I know it’s just the beginning for us, and I am sure there will be difficult times. Just knowing that I can turn to a strong community of people dealing with (and succeeding with) Autism and other developmental disabilities is so wonderful. I hope that one day I will be able to return the favor, and offer encouragement, reassurance, and inspiration to others dealing with Autism. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
