Almost exactly a year ago to the date, I tried to enroll my son MJ into his older sisters school. After one week I ended up taking him out of school because of this gut wrenching feeling I got after his teacher like many others at the time would innocently asked me? “Wow, he is so independent or he won’t even look at me, how do you communicate with him, etc?” I myself have watched my baby boy seemingly slip away, go from a social baby boy beginning to talk, to not answering when I call his name, and barley looking me in the face. The doctors say his development delays line up with autism. That day at the docs, I will always remember the feeling of my heart being ripped apart, instantly feeling sick and hard to breath. The days are not always easy and this new rhythm of emotions from joy, anger, deep sadness, and hope, from grieving what I thought would be....is difficult to say the least. But....some days are simply a mind blowing miracle, like on this day!.....My MJ has successfully started preschool!!!!! No meltdowns and is transitioning like a champion! He is so strong much stronger than I could ever be. He will forever hold a sweet special place in my heart. This gentle warrior has taught me so much already in his short 2yrs of life, I can’t even begin to explain. The small things are huge victories in this house, these are our “mini”miracles! He is my miracle in motion, and HE WILL MOVE MOUNTAINS!
