This is exactly as I feel about my little girl. I am better equipped I suppose than some parents I have taught young people on the spectrum for 15 years. I teach them because I love their outlook and perspective on life. That why I said I didn’t care about the diagnosis. To me she is my little girl and will always be just that.
The one thing I dread is someone saying ‘I’m sorry’ when I mention she has ASD. At that point I may well be continuing my writing from prison lol.
Thanks for your insight. All children are individual, but I enjoy your views on your life and learn a lot.
