It’s the small things that are really the BIG things…

This might look like no big deal but tears streaming from my face. Jax got a desk and has loved sitting at it and “working”… It’s the small things that are really the BIG things… Even reading the new color pencils for the exact color he is looking for… He has done puzzles on it, colored and done his workbooks and he is just so excited to have a big boy desk!   #‎lovehimsomuch‬ ‪#‎firstexperiencesrock‬ ‪#‎willnevergiveup‬

Just Breathe

By | All, Just Breathe | No Comments

So being an Autism Mom can often put a lot of worry on your heart… Autism has kicked my butt but I won’t give up… Jax is improving and we are getting the help he needs so I have to remember that being patient is the key… I have had many struggles on this 12 year Autism Journey…. I have realized who my real friends and family are.. I have strengthened my faith in God and everytime I fall down.. I get right back up with His help… I have cried so much these last several weeks that I don’t even recognize my eyes anymore… I feel myself getting more tired and today I decided at this very moment to take a break… Jax is at gymnastics w his dad so I decided to just take a mental break and stop working and doing and just breathe… I don’t know the future… I just know today Jax did great!! I often in my lectures tell parents that they need to put the oxygen mask on themselves first… So I decided to take my own advice today….

Autism 24/7

By | All, Autism 24/7 | No Comments

So I live Autism 24/7. I am a mother of a child who has Autism and I run an organization that helps families with individuals and families with Autism (we help other non profits-TACA,GR, ATCA and others existing programs and we also help families direct with our Pantry Program).

This last week and half has been one of the hardest weeks I have had in a long time. My son became ill and his Clostridia flared up. We didn’t know what we were first looking at and when we finally did it was a full blown flare up (I now know the red flags and warnings we had seen the weeks prior emerge). I watched my son who had been thriving weeks prior regress badly. I watched his speech become less and less (yet a handful of weeks ago he read a page from his book outloud for the first time) his body became so lethargic he didn’t even want to dress, eye contact diminished, he started to hit his head (with his hand which I had never seen), aggressive at times, stomach pain, and the list goes on… I cried everyday. Yet, I still had to work full days w the Autism Hope Alliance taking meetings from new partners and potential partners convincing them that Hope is possible for our kiddos (all while not crying on the phone knowing how so important their help is to our kiddos). I realized I don’t just turn off my computer and go home and Autism doesn’t exist anymore. I turn off my computer after my day of work and walk right into a door of what I fight for daily. There is nothing fancy about Autism I can assure you.

I am in the trenches fighting along right with every parent I fight for. I prayed a lot this week as I knew that I needed to keep my faith and stay on course. My son started on Tues talking a bit more and yesterday even more and was interested in painting again. He wanted to hang out w me and read and watch a new movie we hadn’t seen (Agent Cody Banks) last night and as I heard him laugh at the funny parts tears ran down my face. He saw the tears I couldn’t hold back and he wiped them and said, “Mommy crying” and I said, “Mommy just missed you and I love you so much!” He replied, “I love you too Mommy” then kissed my cheek so innocently not even understanding the significance of that interaction and just kept watching the movie snuggled next to me. I pray today he continues to thrive and his body continues to heal. Regression is never easy however, I never give up and I keep reading and researching. I do all I can in my power. The minute I learned he had a Clostridia flare up and yeast I decided that minute to put him on a Paleo diet. The medicines could do their job but I could do mine too. Got his bloodwork done, stool samples and urine samples in and knew I was doing all I could. Hearing Jax laugh and seeing his smile are things I will never take for granted. I know we will get thru this and I know the fight for our kiddos is so important. I am so thankful for doctors like Dr Rossignol (Jax’s doc) and others like him that recognize what is happening to our children. To me Biomedical and Diet are crucial. We can’t stop fighting even when it gets so hard you can’t breathe. We are in this together. Looking forward to the beautiful rainbow at the end of this storm.

No More Dreading Bloodwork

By | All, No More Dreading Bloodwork | No Comments

So grateful to the AMAZING Christopher Hayward! This man draws 11 viles of blood faster than anything I have seen! Always gets it right the first time! The years and years of dreading bloodwork is no more! Jax was scared today and not really in the mood as we are dealing w some bad gut stuff and a flare up and Jax is not himself. Thankful Jax’s daddy can calm him down and for the brilliance of Christopher who can get the job done without missing a beat. ‪#‎grateful‬ ‪#‎lookingforwardtoseeinglabs‬ ‪#‎nevergiveup‬

“Cheese”

By | "Cheese", All | No Comments

Love this kiddo! His smile is contagious! The other day we were on a walk in the neighborhood and he jumped in front of me and said, “Cheese.” So I naturally took a pic and laughed at this cutie… Through the challenging moments remember the moments like this.. No one said being a parent is easy… Being an Autism parent came w no instructional manual and each day is different. Each kiddo is different. Celebrate each victory! ‪#‎onedayatatime‬‪#‎nevergiveup‬
