There is another way

I no longer feel alone as a parent of an autistic child, but there was a time when I did.
When my son was first identified as autistic, I looked for parents in similar situations. This is probably the natural thing to do. But I did not find supportive places.

Finding our Rhythm

I’m a sole parent. I differentiate between sole parent and single parent because my son simply does not have another parent in his life. A lot of people think that fact makes our lives difficult, but it really doesn’t.
We’re actually incredibly fortunate. We’re fortunate because I don’t have to negotiate my parenting style with another person.
