I am married with three children. The Oldest one is severely Autistic. Second child is also severely Autistic. The Third child is mildly Autistic. I was born with Higher Functioning Autism Syndrome Disorder, and was able to slowly progress with learning things behind sc
[More]hedule of other kids. Helped along by family and siblings and educators I was able to learn correct social behaviors and even begin talking correctly- then got to start public school just after that :) Even though my life was full of many many challenges, I was able to slowly overcome so many adversities and difficulties, and even large setbacks! With all the help of family and friends and specialists, I was able to attain enlistment into the US Navy! And also a wonderful marriage; which actually brought further difficulties and adversities, but such is life, and I am determined to find the enjoyment of life in everything that comes along! Along with finding purpose and meaning, even for those things that seem as though no good could ever come from them, search hard enough and there can be found the tiniest amount of good purpose in everything, I think.
--My Children: Girl 6 yr old / Boy 4 yr old / Boy 2 yr old. Girl talks a little bit, still needs diapers - we use the cloth velcro-on diapers that allow her to use the potty when she can, since she can't tell us. First Boy doesn't say any words at 4yr old, lining everything he can into perfect straight lines around the house. - and other Boy- is a Baby!
~That's pretty much all there's to really know! I guess, know that Autism is NOT The End; THERE IS HOPE Beyond Autism and an Autistic person can do anything they set their mind to and have the physical capacity to achieve!!! Thank You For Reading!! =)
