This is my first time reading a book about other parent's experiences raising a child on the spectrum. most of the stories were pretty good but there was one that was so similar to me and to sara that I could have written it. It talked about having a daughter that is high functioning, but not quite typical so she kind of inhabits this in-between state, which is what I feel sara inhabits. The other has a blog, so I intend to contact her.
I was currently on a blog called "from here to there and back" the topic was Complex and Difficult Things. There were so many Parents talking about their child(ren) with Autism and other disabilities. We as Parents are all in a race to find a cure for our children. We have found out that all our children that suffers with the same disorders all have similar characteristics. Parents, we feel that we are alone with this complex and very fragile challenge that we have to face each day for our kids.
