Well yesterday was the day I feel like I have been waiting for since the 1st of June last year. That was the day when the penny dropped for me that Ethan was showing autistic traits.
I feel like I have travelled a world of emotions since then and it feels like we have been in limbo for a very long time but I know that we are one of the lucky ones as it hasn’t even been a year since I requested a referral from our doctor.
diagnosed with Autism.
At the moment I feel a huge sense of relief. Relief that my concerns about Ethan’s traits were right and relief that we can start moving in a direction to get Ethan the help that he needs to develop and grow.
It has taken me a long time to get to this place and I still have good days and bad days but as a parent I’m prepared that this will be an emotional journey.
All I know is that Ethan is an amazing little boy and this diagnosis doesn’t change him as it is part of his wonderful personality. Ethan is our little superstar!
