Count with me

My name is Laura. I am the mother of 5 kids and I know how challenging it is to have a special child, I have been in this journey for many years as I not only have one but two kids with autism.
When you know you have a special child the responsibility is even heavier, it is very overwhelming, you have to go through many feelings that you don't understand. Nobody is ready for this not even if you are a doctor or a educator not even a psychologist. Even if you are just beginning this"journey" you may be already tired, confused and feeling depressed. If you are there, guess what? you are not alone. Count with me.
When I look back I see myself trying to do all I could, literally, sleeping so little, being "super mom" when there is no such thing, I totally forgot about myself and this is not healthy, besides who wants a stressed mother?  I was wrong. Anyways if you have to go through all this you have to know that you are not alone, there are a  lot of resources  that you can relay on, and more important of all is that as special and unique your child is, so are you, and you are about to become someone even better than you thought you can be . Let me be your friend,  I'll walk with you through this journey , I want to hear from you! Join me!
If you are like me and have been here for a while we have so many things in common and we can share resources, advises, experiences and good tips that would make our life easier and more joyful.

  5. Beautiful words and inexplicable the way you’ve stayed so strong throughout these years. You should be so proud of yourself. I’m very happy and proud to know someone like you. On the other hand, you should pampered yourself sometimes ;)
