I never expected to have to drag THIS Huffington Post piece out of mothballs. Titled, "The Grateful Voice of the Autism Mom," it's about the two years Mark, the girls and I survived and even flourished under very trying times. Seems the trying times are back. And a new friend, a good friend, a true friend, is helping me to pry open my heart yet again. Funny, practice does not make perfect. Not for me. I'd better get it right this time. I sure don't want to have to do it again.
