This is a layout that I did about Madisyn's autism months ago!! But, with all the talk and the thread on the pub board, I thought I would post it here. Not really my style anymore - but a layout I'll cherish. Thanks for looking.
Edited to add journaling (thanks for asking!): Since your birth, we have had our good and bad times. I’m sure that all parents say that about raising a child, but it is different with a child with Autism. For 2 ½ years of your life, we knew that something wasn’t quite right, but we didn’t know what was wrong. It wasn’t until August of 2004 that we received the answers to our questions and a diagnosis, High-Functioning Autism. In that moment, I was so relieved to know what was wrong and to be on a path to help all of us deal with our difficult times better.
Since then, you have been attending school four days a week at the Carmen B. Pingree School for Autism. It has been a huge blessing for our family. You have made such miraculous changes in just six months. You aren’t so afraid of changes anymore. Your speech, motor and social skills have improved so much that you are now up to the same level as other three year olds. How incredible!
I am so grateful for you in my life Madisyn! You have taught me so much about being a mom. There have been times that I’ve just cried and cried because it has been so hard, and yet you can be such a sweetheart that I just can’t stop loving and holding you. I never will! We will battle Autism together, as a family. You will never be alone in your journey through life. We are here for you…always!
