The Love that I have for my Child Knows No Bounds...

The love that I have for my child is fierce. It is an indescribable love that cannot be put into words. As my child's mother, I feel like it is my job to protect him, to advocate for him, and to do everything in my power to make sure that he has the best possible life.
When my child was diagnosed with autism, I knew that this journey into motherhood would be different from what I experienced with my neurotypical child. For the most part, my oldest son has the necessary skills to advocate for what he needs. In addition, he can communicate well enough to express his hurts, his wants, and his needs. When my middle child was diagnosed, I knew that things would not be as easy and that it would be up to me to do everything that I possibly could to make my child's life the best possible life.

I would describe myself like a momma bear. I will not put up with other children being mean to my child. I will not allow my child to be ridiculed or degraded. It is my job to protect my child with every breath that I have. I am his mom and he is my child. I was chosen to be his protector and I will do everything in my power to give him everything that he needs in this life to be successful.

Things may not always be easy and this may not be the road that I had originally planned on taking, but this is the road that I am on and I will do everything possible to make it the most amazing journey possible. I love my child with a love that knows no bounds. I would go to the end of the universe and back to give my child what he needs to be successful. I am proud of my child and I thank God everyday that I was chosen to be his mom.

  1. A child who has an autism should always be treated equally like us because they are still human beings that breathes and feels. Also, it's a nice thing that there is also some type of education that is appropriate for them.
