I am new here and while I do not have all of the answers, I do have a 10 y/o aspie and have been through quite a bit over the last 10- almost 11 years or so....like so many of you! In some cases I have been there and done that and in other cases I can only pray for you. That said, I just read a reply from one Mom to another and I am in shock over the reply so I am venting here in a new post.
The reply said that her daughter was just taken from her because of safety issues and she was debating on if she wanted to fight a 2 year order.
EXCUSE ME????????????????? WT hell?
YOUR daughter did not ask to be brought into this world- what is wrong with you? You are not a mother. A mother would NOT say that about her child no matter how tired, how sick, how depressed, how hard...whatever the reason! Does your child quit when it is too hard for her? Put yourself in your child's shoes.....imagine what she must go through each day...and you think you have it hard? You make me sick. You do not deserve that child and you should NOT fight the order....
Any mother out there who has something to say to me- don't. My daughter has fits and rages, been through a ton- just like EVERY single mother of a child with Autism....but you don't quit on your child. Yes- it is hard. Yes- it can be brutal!- Yes, I know you are tired....But you don't give up on your child. It is way harder for our children than it is for us. Do you think our children asked for this? They did not.
So just 'lock yourself in your room'. You do not deserve that blessing of a child...not even for a moment!
