Autism Gratitude: My Birthday Boy

Nathan turned 18 this week! Happy Birthday to my boy! I can honestly say I am so thankful that God sent us this wonderful son. Although having a child with autism was never in my plans, it is a journey I am so thankful to have taken.

Nathan has taught me so much about pure love and patience. I love who I have become because I am his mother. Isn’t it interesting that sometimes the very challenges we originally feared and didn’t want to deal with help refine us to become such a better person?

I have found such joy in mothering my son with autism. Yes, there are hard times as well, but there is also pure joy.
