Lately it feels like every single day I am reminded about how things are so much harder for our little ASD angel than for other kids. When he was a baby we had no idea anything was different. Then for a couple of years we knew and sometimes things were really tough, but sometimes things were almost normal and we didn't even really think about ASD for a while. But it has been while now that it is almost every day we are reminded that things aren't the same for him as most other kids his age. I wonder if this is just the way it is going to be as he gets older. Are the differences going to become more and more noticeable as he gets older? I keep hoping he will learn and catch up and things will be less noticeable, but am I just in denial? Will we be able to forget that he is different? Should we even try? Or should we embrace and accept it?
