Looking for advice and looking to give advice
My son is three years old and has autism. This is all new to me because no one in my family was ever had this. I know the God that I serve makes no mistakes. My son is a very loving and affectionate. He wasn't always like that though. He didn't like to be hugged and kissed but as a mom that's what we do. Now all he does is give me and my older son hugs and kisses. I talk to my sisters about it and some of my friends but they don't understand what I'm actually going through. I have had teachers and speech therapists and someone to come and deal with his sensory issues but they only work with them half of them don't have kids period. I don't care how much a person works them until you have a child that is ypurs that was in your belly you can't possibly understand my situation. It's kind of like me telling someone I know how it feels to lose your mom It would be a lie cause m mom is still alive. Its even harder for me because his dad is not involved and doen't care to bbe involved. It is very stressful thinking my son may never speak or be what society calls normal. What is normal when you think about it. I know a lot of normal people who are in jail, or who sell drugs for the rest of their lives. My son Trent is a very happy kid. He laughs all the time, he smiled all the time and he destroys all my stuff like a so called normal kid. I have a real issue with sending him out in the world meaning school due to the fact that he doesn't speak. I was very protective of my oldest son and he is what you consider normal. I'm trying to find other people who understand excalty what I'm going through which is why I'm on this site. Hopefully I can meet some of you'll and talk and get advice as well as give advice.
