Let's go on Vacation

Those of us who do Biomedical treatment with our kiddos understand the tremendous work it takes to keep them going. There are honestly some days that I would like to throw in the towel and start over...

Although the road has been long....with no end in has ultimately been a blessing.

DJ now lives more in our world than his own. I can even joke with friends about his idiosyncrasies. I honestly know more about trains than any parent should and definitely more about autism and biomedical treatment than I would care to.

Still if I have learned anything, life is a journey. I appreciate DJ's milestones more than I would have if he was neural typical. He has taught me to live in the moment and appreciate the infectious joy and energy that radiates from him.

I write this as I prepare for our family vacation. A time to slow down and get away from the pressures of daily life. I am excited to have this time to reflect, refresh, and regroup for another year. I hope all of you get the same chance too.
