March 11, 2015! Finally someone gave Owen the diagnosis of autism. What does it change? Nothing. How do I feel? Relieved and mad and sad and happy and confused and ready to cry and want to rejoice and and and. What’s the real answer, how am I really supposed to feel, does it make a difference, does it help, does it change anything… well no, just makes me know I am even more determined to help my son be exactly who he should be. Today didn’t start off any differently than any other day, he just now has a label and my title is still mom. We are the faces of autism!
