Special Education week & Autism & ADHD Awareness Month

Can I make a request? Is anyone willing to post this and leave it on your status for 1 hour? It is Special Education week & Autism & ADHD Awareness month, and this is in honor of all children who struggle every day, I know 99% of you wont Re-Post this and I Know the 1% that will. I know the struggle that my friends and family that have autistic and ADHD children go through, so I'm posting this for them

Please do not forget about them.

On behalf of all of these families, including my own, here are some things I’d like you to know:

Some days we learn a lot from autism.
Some days we feel completely ill-equipped to handle autism.
Some days we despise autism with every cell in our body.
Some days we appreciate a new perspective given to us courtesy of autism.

Nonetheless, families like mine are here to educate and learn. Fighting. Hard. There are lots of us, and our numbers increase every day.

We are exhausted.
We are broke.
We agonize about the future.
We just want to make it through each day without incident.
We wonder what our child’s experience of life is like.
We struggle.
We celebrate each success.
We wish we understood our children more.
We love our kids.
