Autism - Spreading the word, and it's not a bad one!

A better day today - at last some clear time to think, and the PMA is back :). I wanted to spread the word with friends just because I think autism is a word which a lot of people don't know much about. That includes myself before we were given this news. It's not a bad word, but something that is rarely talked about despite the recorded increase in diagnosis. Some people who I have already mentioned this to have said 'oh yes, I've seen a television programme on that, but Sasha's nothing like that'. Well no, she's not severly autistic, but it's a wide spectrum. At the moment I'm just feeling thankful that she's on the lower end of it. I know there's a lot of people out there with bigger challenges in life, or some who have sadly lost children, and I have no idea how they cope. I'm just grateful that I have my family and friends' support, and two beautiful girls who make us laugh (and sometimes cry!) in different ways every day.
