Autism: My Life With My 2 Autistic Sons
Hello, my name is Nancy Clyne. I am pastor's wife and I have 3 children, two boys and a girl. Both our boys have autism, Jordan who is 19 years old and Taylor who is 16 years old. Our girl Katie, we adopted her from China when she was 14 months old and she is now 4 years old.
I wanted to blog about autism to help educate people and heighten the awareness of autism. I also wanted this blog to bring hope to parents and caregivers who take care of children with autism.
I know that dealing with your child can be overwhelming and confusing at times. You may feel that at times your life is more like a mine field, that if you just take the wrong step everything will blow up in your face and your child will suffer from it for the rest of their life.
Well I am here to tell you that after living with autism for almost 2 decades now that that is not going to happen. Sometimes as parents of children with autism we get so busy trying to find a cure and at the least a good treatment program that we forget to enjoy out children.
Now don't get me wrong I don't think that any parent should ever give up on hoping and expecting a cure for autism, because I definitely believe that will happen and I believe it is very close. But when people ask my husband and myself 'how are your boys?', my husband often replies 'well they are healthy and happy and that says alot more than for some people'. I don't think there is any parent out there that would not want any more for there children, it is fairly universal that all parents wish their children to be healthy and happy.
So I hope this blog can help people to understand autism a little bit better and also to give parents hope that there actually is life after autism.
