It has been barely a week since we got the confirmation that my son Ethan falls within the autism spectrum. Some moments, I'm super positive; but sometimes I also feel discouraged and overwhelmed.
It was therapeutic to hear myself talk openly about my child and my role as a special needs parent in the special needs parent support group. If a tree falls to the ground and nobody is there to hear it, did it really make a sound? Now that I was speaking and I was heard, I felt a certain kind of emotional freedom.
