What about autism is bothering you right now, this minute? Please let us know if you're at peace with it right now, too. Our feelings can change so rapidly from moment to moment: some moments are good, some not so much! That's okay, natural and expected, don't you think?
Right now, I'm fretting about attention spans. I saw Jack working with his wonderful aide on Wednesday and once again am struck by how difficult it is to get him to focus. (It's not just me...the aide couldn't get much out of him either!)
While I can usually stay in the moment with Jack, this issue has me wondering about the future of his education. Fact is, he's made enormous progress this year, so it shouldn't bother me. But it does. It makes me wonder if his aide next year will be as patient and persistent, as kind and gentleand creative. Will his teacher be as good? Oh, the uncertainty of it all, and the difficulty of trusting in Jack and God that it'll be okay.
Deep breath, Susan. Deep breath.
