My wife is going to be writing in her blog about her journey through life with our autistic son. She is a better writer than I in the sense that she is able to dredge up some very deep feelings and pen them. I, on the other hand, have to pull those emotions up kicking and screaming, not want to face them, go into denial, confront everything BUT those emotions, and then finally when I’ve run out of excuses, face them.
I thought, however, that this would be an excellent opportunity to pen my journey through autism with my son. For a few weeks I’m going to put aside the aviator, stop hiding behind humor and confront some issues I’ve left buried deep within me. Though I would not normally do something like this in a public forum my hope is that our stories reach those who may have to confront the very issues we did. Hopefully the readers will come to understand that God works all things to the good of those who love Him.
