Hi, I am Jen and am the mother of two sweet and loveable little boys—AJ, who is eight, and my four-year-old, Hugh. Both of them are on the autism spectrum. It can be a challenge for the three of us to get through the day sometimes. I wanted to start writing about my day-to-day experiences to provide myself a safe place to talk about my feelings and the things that went right (or wrong) as we travel on this autism path. Sometimes writing things down gives me a creative perspective I didn’t have before, and I thought other parents of special-needs children might need that too every once in a while.
