I get it...I am too emotional. I want to take all of these children that have been poked and prodded and tell them it will be okay.
I read Autism Diva's blog about children who are drained of all of their blood and cry. I read emails from parent's who want to know how to shove 20 pills, at one time, down their child's throat. I read about one mother who is about to divorce her husband, because he does not want to continue the treatments. I pray he gets the kids.
I go to bed every night, and thank God for my children.
I go to bed every night and pray for those who do not have a choice.
When will these doctor's and parent's be held accountable for their behaviors? When will these children be able to be themselves?
We know autism in our family. We know how hard and challenging it is. We especially know with our 5 year old. He is in the depth of autism. He is very severe. He is non-verbal and very hyperactive. He is challenging beyond belief. He is also the most beautiful, most magnificent human I have ever seen.
Instead of looking at the negative, I see him as the most economical health spa I could find. Who needs Gold's Gym with Kiernan. I am a size 12. Haven't been that in 10 years. Hoorah for Kiernan.
- I am the proud mother of 6 children. 5 of our children have autism. We do not feel our world has ended, but just begun. We do not chelate, intervene biochemically, give shots of any kind, practice ABA, etc. We treat them as we treat any humanbeing. We treat them with kindness and respect and expect the same from them. They are exceptional children.
