This is a way big deal for me I've dreamed for years of taking them back to the spot where Brandon proposed to me. I want them to love disneyland as much as I do. I want to share that energy and love with my kids.
When Harrison was diagnosed on the autism spectrum a huge part of my grieving was fixated on this trip to disneyland- will he even enjoy it? will the noise bug him ? the crowds? It was heartbreaking to me. We knew so little at that point....He's come soooooo far and I'm so proud of the hard work he does every day. That boy amazes me I see things connecting in his brain.. his social skills improving- and with some more work he'll be in normal kindergarten next year... His yearly assessment was last week and they've almost put him in the aspergers category. Which just means to me that he's come a long way and he's worked very hard to get there. I can see his perseverance and determination to figure things out. Which is why we are celbrating his hard work! And just taking a break from therapy to have fun as a family and clebrate the boys birthdays!
He's doing food therapy right now and eating new things YAY!. He also loves his new aide. which is such a huge blessing. I'm so incredibly greatful to people who pushed me to get him tested even when I didnt want to. It was hard to admit it and really really scary, but without you pushing me he wouldn't have gotten help as fast and early as he did, and wouldn't be doing so amazing. I feel so blessed by my father in heaven for knowing he was exactly what I needed in my life. And if you know Harrison well you can sense his super sweet spirit. He's gentle and kind and his smile and eyes light up an entire room. I can not wait until he walks into cars land and realizes that it's come to life. He loveeeeees cars.
I'm excited... this is going to be an awesome trip.
so greatful to my heavenly father for the blessings I see unfolding in my life right now.
