Authoring at Living Well Mom, raising 4 kids and publishing the article heard around the world: “Dear Mom of a Child with High Functioning Autism.” Erika’s oldest son has high functioning autism. Their journey has been full of ups and downs... likely as yours has been.
Having a child with autism can be incredibly isolating. People have no clue what your life is like. They might think you child is undisciplined or might even accuse you of being a “bad” mother when that’s so far from the truth, you can’t even see the line! You know it’s not true, but it still hurts.
You, mama, are incredibly strong.
Motherhood brings out something supernatural in a woman when we have a special needs child. But that doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to be tired, scared, stressed, overwhelmed, or any of the thousands of emotions you might feel. You do SO much for your autistic child and you are INCREDIBLE!
This is exactly what the Autism Moms Mentoring Program is all about.
The Autism Mentoring Program
This program was designed to provide support to mom’s and dad’s of an autisic child
that are looking for a lifeline, in the way I was looking for one.
