The day James got his label was the day I changed. I became a fierce force. My voice got louder and more passionate.
Believe it or not things don't get handed to you in the realm of autism.
As a parent you have to fight for everything.
You fight for timelines and your place on waiting lists.
You switch and change all therapists until you find the right team.
You fight with family and friends about their understanding of your child.
You fight with piles of paperwork.
You fight for inclusion, support and understanding.
You fight your own internal feelings.
And finally you fight with autism, you do the fight dance with that bad boy daily.
You see I am not going to sit back and watch the world not see the beauty of my son and all those that place on the rainbow.
My 'fight' is driven by the pure ignorance of mainstream minds and getting these kids the much needed interventions they require.
Last time I checked autism was 1 in 66.... so people need to start smashing down those box walls because with those stats they will be effected too somewhere along their journey.
Be brave. Fight the good fight.
WHATEVER it takes! ✌🏻👌🏻🙏🏻👊🏻💙
