I thought this book was okay it was a little slow and often hard to finish but I really related with a lot of the passages and below are some of my favoritesLife rarely goes according to plan and too often we try to control situations that are beyond our controlThe things we least plan for can become our greatest treasuresLike many parents I saw my son s challenges as something to get past so that my family and I could get on with our lives I eventually learned that this IS life this is what life isYou have to let yourself grieve for the child he didn t turn out to beMy answer will never be to mourn It will be to pour love on my son to celebrate him to understand to support him and to follow his leadThey were at the salon trying to cut his hair and he had a gigantic meltdown throwing things screaming etc I once understood that having children meant sacrificing some sense of control but and I find myself in situations like the one at the hair salon that seem completely out of hand and beyond my ability to manage I think it s a good idea for you to bring him to meet one of our psychologists Denise said I feel an odd mix of satisfactions and heartbreakFor the next 20 minutes she engages Ezra in a succession of tests I don t understand most of the tests and can t discern what would constitute success or failure so it s difficult to know how to react or feel as I watch I experience a tangle of emotions Half of me is desperately rooting for Ezra as if my kid s in a soccer game and I m cheering from the bleachers The other half deeply wants Ezra to fail so that he can receive services Solet s talk says the woman doing the testing Then she says I think Ezra is on the autism spectrum In years to come I will listen to many parents describe the moment they heard those words or words like them and how devastated they felt Some will compare it to a punch in the stomach Some will say they felt like they d had all of the air sucked out of them They describe disbelief denial shock I don t feel any of those thingsBy the time we hear the word autism applied to our son it feels almost like good news like we ve won some very twisted form of the lottery It means we ll get services She gives us a few ideas for how to start make schedule books with visual cues about what s going to happen every day occupational therapy and most important to find a preschool where he will fit in and where the educators know how to help him
