Im so excited to tell people that my kids are achieving so much. Then they just look at me like. oh thats nice. It really gets to me. They don't know what we go through. You would think that your relatives would put more of a front for you but they don't. Grrrr. It hurts when people ignore how hard it is raise a child with autism. But I love the little things my kids do. Lillian age 6, make letters for her friends. then she folds them up like little envolopes. Joselyn, age 4, walked around the house muttering, I am a robot. I have waited so long for a little bit of normal. I get brought to tears thinking about all they have overcome. Why can't people just atleast pretend to be happy for me, huh?
