I have been grappling with the idea of keeping this blog or shutting it down. We have a lot of big days ahead with the birth of our second child, Kaden being evaluated and (cross your fingers) accepted into the school we have been praying for.
As the day draws near for Kaden’s big evaluations with school I find myself cherishing our time together more and more. I love our time hanging out and painting or playing cars. I love being the one that gets to teach him something new. Watching him reach a milestone we have been working so hard at. There is nothing like it.
School is going to be a huge blessing and will allow lil man to grow faster then I am sure I would have ever imagined. So one blessing I hope I take with me when facing the challenges that lie ahead is the ability to adapt. It is so easy to turn to others during these busy times for advice or what would you do in my situation. However, something I learned rather quickly about raising a child with ASD. Unless you are parenting lil man you will never truly know how you would handle these situations.
It is scary, lots of praying at night that we are making the best decisions for him. Asking God for guidance with how to introduce lil man to the new baby. Praying lil man knows and feels our love. Praying for patience. Praying for guidance. Praying for strength.
During these big days, we will lean on each other as family and give it up to God.
