As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

Follow my blog as I share my life and my experiences as a person who loves someone with autism.

Patience is a Virtue

Sometimes the stares hurt. People looking at us as if we're bad parents because when Bryce is upset and frustrated and can look like a temper tantrum gone bad.

Lately when Bryce is upset and can't find a way to express his anger or tell us what's wrong he resorts to screaming. This deafening scream draws a huge amount of attention and that's when all the stares start to pierce us.

Sometimes we can find out what's wrong and calm him down, but for the times we can't he just shuts us out. Sometimes it can be hard to ask him what's wrong or ask him to stop screaming because it's difficult for him to communicate in normal circumstances so when he's upset it's just impossible.


We're not bad parents, we just have a lot of patience.

Thanks for reading,
