Exactly 6 months ago I was sitting in the same spot I am right now. Crying. Sobbing. I was so heartbroken and it felt as if my life had just been torn into a million pieces. It was the day we got Parker's autism diagnosis. I had been preparing myself for months to hear those words, but none of it made that moment any easier. We have been on a crazy ride since that day. There was several weeks of numbness and chaos, a few days of feeling hopeless and finally some clarity and direction.
I have been floored by the support and resources we have been given. I finally feel like we are in a great groove. We have a schedule and it runs pretty smoothly. It doesn't feel nearly as busy as it looks on iCal! We have an amazing team that works with Parker and I am so excited about the progress he has made. We still have so far to go, but he is only 2. TWO! As much stress and craziness as this process has been I am so happy that early intervention is becoming so common. I can't wait to see the next places this journey takes us and I could not be more proud Parker. He is my rockstar.
