Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments about my son. Just to clarify: Nathan has not been officially diagnosed with autism, we are just a the referral stage. Nathan has only been seen to qualify for services from the public school system, but nothing is definite yet. I’ll circle back with his doctor so we can find some resources in the meantime instead of waiting until November.
I don’t fully believe he’s on the spectrum, but I don’t know enough to say where he is. I just know what I see and what I want to see. I want to know how to properly nurture this highly charged, super emotional, all-around awesome kid. I’m just grateful that when I share something as heavy as this, we just receive an incredible amount of support and assurance that we are loved and not alone.
