This was tough to do...Bub saw me working on it and said Oh great...the worst day of my life. I explained this was for me not so much for him...he wouldn't have this page as a memory unless he wanted to. I then went on to explain that maybe he could see the picture as change....things changed after that. If only I could convince myself to see it the same way. This was the picture...the only one that turned out from his 8th grade graduation. I hadn't seen him in a group setting since first grade...Since his diagnosis this picture haunts me. It screams at me to wake up and see what's there.

I wasn't going to share it...but then I decided by not sharing it might be that I'm ashamed. I am not ashamed. He is still my baby. My sweet sweet boy. I just don't want to add pain to pain. Here's to healing...


  1. I agree with you on this one. Is this your brother or your son? I support Autism. Being a third grade teacher, I see it daily. It is not something to be ashamed of, but instead, unique quality to love even more so! I really like your layout and keep you in my prayers!

  2. He is my oldest son. My middle son has it as well, as does my husband. They all have it to different degrees, and living a day in our lives can sure be difficult! I have adapted well, but some days are better than others!
