Hello everyone, I have a 2 year old son(one and only child) and I really want another baby, but I am so very very scared that my next child will be diagnosed with Autism. These past two years have had some laughs with him however I will not lie, there have been times that I cry because I feel helpless! I wish I could help my son speak! I pray that one day he will say a word. At this point I will take any word. Anything!
Am I just over reacting with this fear? What are your thoughts, do any of you have other children and were they diagnosed with Autism also? Please help! I am 31 and I feel I have to make the decision very soon.
