Thank you GOD for understanding people!
I had a conversation with my mom about a week before Easter. (My small family usually comes over) I told her that I'm at the point that anyone that doesn't want to accept my life or my son can stay away. She told me that everyone accepts Nicolas and his autism. (I even found out that my uncle that has Tourette also has aspergers) That was weird for me. We had Easter and my cousin asked about Nick and said how it looks like he is doing good and really wanted to know about his autism with concern. I was very surprised!
Tomorrow we go to the other side of the family. My DH family. It is a baby shower. I am dealing with the stress from my 14 yr old niece. She hates the family and doesn't want to go. Her words to me is that family acts like family and they aren't her family. I'm making her go. She isn't happy. I don't think they believe that Nicolas is autistic. So wish me good luck tomorrow. But I still believe the same. That if they don't want to be civil and appreciate what he needs then they can stay away. I told DH that we are only staying an hour. For everyone's sanity.
