A mother’s intuition is rarely wrong and never more so than when it comes to their babies. Over the past few years I’ve had many discussions with parents, especially mum’s, children with autism and they all seem to have had an ‘aha’ moment. That moment long before the diagnosis when you know deep in your core, your soul, that something is just not quite right with your child.
As most parents of a child with Autism would be aware, every day is always a surprise and you never know what you are going to get. Every morning I hear Jesse’s little feet pitter patter down the hallway towards my room and I snuggle further down into my bed. I savour the last few moments of peace and hope like hell that it will be a good morning.
