My three year old son is autistic. While I am sure that it is nothing like what your daughter has. I have come to realize in the year since he has been diagnosed that a special needs child is a special needs child. They are all gifts from heaven, and the special people who care for them are the luckiest people on earth to be choosen to care for these angels. I know that at times it can can be very trying, especially when you haven't slept in days. Since I don't really have any idea what you have to go through with your daughtermy advice would be to research a lot. If you can find a support group near you or even online with parents of other child like your daughter or even just on for parents of special needs children, join it. Sometime just hearing that you are not the only one really helps. I t also helps to just talk about it and sometimes parents whao have gone through something similar can help with their experience. And last but not least, find some one you can really trust to stay with your daughter once in awhile, and make time for yourself. If you don't take care of yourself you can't take proper care of your angel.
