Half of me feels like I am ready to step up & be strong... Other half feels like a failure, even a little guilty. I must of done something wrong somewhere when I tried to have a healthy happy family. My oldest will be 3 on Halloween & his sister turns 2 the day before Halloween. Any mom going thru the same situation have son advice. I'm tired of sugar coating, I want to help my kids.

So they're on the autism spectrum. You have two very special children that you've been blessed with!

Yes, your challenges may be many, but then again, they may not. Each child is an individual, even within the spectrum, and each has very special qualities.

Please don't think it was anything that you 'did wrong' during pregnancy. It most definitely was not anything that you did wrong, and there was nothing you could have changed.

Look for support groups and developmental aids in your area to help you learn how to care for your babies! Good luck!

Diagnosed with what? Your post is fairly cryptic. Unless they are victims of alcohol abuse (Fetal Alcohol syndrome), there's nothing that you did 'wrong'.
