As much as I want my children to accept and embrace what life gives, I don't want them to feel guilty for wishing that their sister could tie her shoes or write her name or talk to them about how life can be so mean and unfair. I want them to know it's OK to love their sister, while not loving that she has autism.
My whole existence is to ensure my family's success. At times, that will mean that my princess makes too much noise in public. More often than not, I will get it wrong and make matters worse -- sorry, I'm new to this. We are trying to give our princess the best possible life -- and I wouldn't change this for the world.
