Welcome to My Personal Page
When Paxton was diagnosed with Autism it was a time that was very difficult for Blaine and I. So many different emotions were brought forward. Anger, fear, sadness, worry, the list goes on and on. I felt... angry because I didn't understand why this had to happen to us. I was sad because I knew our lives were forever changed and I didn't know if I could handle that. I felt sadness that our little boy who completed our family would have so many struggles in his life. I felt worry that he might be treated poorly by his peers because of his differences. I had anxiety over choices we had to make regarding his disorder. Along with many other emotions I finally felt acceptance. We were blessed with the most beautiful, special boy who has brought us and anyone who has the pleasure to be a part of his life so much joy. He is happy, he is kind, he is smart and he is loved. What more can you want for your child. Our "normal" isn't like everyone else but it is ours and I embrace it everyday. We celebrate all his milestones and are so blessed to have amazing supportive friends and family along our journey with Autism. We love you Paxton and today are so thankful for all that you have taught us. You have made me a better Mom and person. So everyone, please Light it up Blue today in support of our very special boy and our family .
Did you know that 1 in 88 children is diagnosed with autism? Did you know that autism is more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and paediatric aids combined? Did you know that in the last 7 years, the prevalence of autism has increased 78%? Did you know that there are tens of millions of adults living with autism spectrum disorder? These numbers are truly staggering.
