  1. The ending of your piece reminds me of what Temple Grandin’s mother said in the move: “Different but equal.”

    Do you not tell a child they are adopted? If it is said from the time they are little any stigma is gone. Why not with diagnoses?

    Well said, Jess, as usual!

  2. I loved it! Thanks for writing it! My hubby was a little concerned when I told him I started a blog for my 3 year old son and his adventures with Autism….I think he wanted to keep it more under wraps like a secret…but I want it out there…no secrets.

    Thanks again.
