I wish we could’ve captured the picture of my daughter, wife and I when the ultrasound technician said, “there’s baby #1.” We had no idea that we were expecting twins and I remember driving home thinking, “man, this is going to be an adventure.” Little did I know.
When our boys were about 26 months, I remember leaving another office with my wife after an appointment confirming our suspicions that our twins were autistic. Now, life wasn’t only an adventure, but it just got a little more interesting. One of the most commented on posts that I’ve done had an interview that my wife did for Fox News on raising autistic children – you can check it out here.
I am no expert nor am I in any way qualified to speak on autism but. . . .this is our journey from a dad’s perspective. I don’t have a ton of answers but sometimes life isn’t about finding the answers but rather, living the experiences day to day. Not many dad’s get to spend time at home with their kids and for at least this year, I’ll have that opportunity. I feel like I was a bystander to their first four years. . . .now, I am living it day to day and it has truly been eye opening for me.
My only goal with this blog is that if you are up late at night looking for experiences with autism and learning more about “what life is like” helping children with it, that you’ve found a blog that provides you with some insight to your questions. . . . and helps you sleep easier.
