April is Autism Awareness Month - Day 11 & 12

Yesterday was the first day back to school from Spring Break. Joshua was so excited to go back. Being only 4, the bus comes to the end of our driveway. When it arrived we got ready to go out and I opened the door. The minute I got the screen door open Joshua was gone. He ran to that bus like Dash from the Incredibles. He never even looked back.

I spent a lot of time yesterday thinking about this. In a way it made me sad. I kept thinking that my baby is growing up. He doesn't need me anymore. Now I could have wasted the entire day being bummed about this but instead... I celebrated!

Independence is awesome:-) At the beginning of this journey I couldn't imagine a day when Joshua wouldn't need me. I couldn't envision a future at all. I was completely stuck in the day by day struggles. To see the rays of hope are priceless.
