Chaos has consumed my life in the past two months. As you've noticed, blogging has not been a priority in the months leading to summer. Preparing a child with autism for change is hard work, and believe me, I'm working HARD.
My babe is currently putting me through an emotional roller coaster ride as I've decided that the two of us are moving. Moving is a huge deal to these kids, and I'm scared out of my mind myself.
To make matters worse, my support system is crumbling away... My favorite facebook page Autism Winnipeg is dispersing, and it feels like the end of an era. Many people I've made connections with I've made because of being involved in Autism Winnipeg. The friends I have today are all members of Autism Winnipeg, and it saddens me that our time with Autism Winnipeg has come to an end. I am so grateful for the friends I've made through this group, and feel sad for the people I could have met.
Saddest yet is the group being split three different ways...
Autism Manitoba - for parents and caregivers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/244966218954875/
Autism Winnipeg floor time and RDI:
and finally our very own PACE branched out to make it on our own as Autism Winnipeg PACE: https://www.facebook.com/groups/462687207094107/
I really hate the idea of Autism Winnipeg splitting up into three different groups, but at least there are options for people to choose from to follow what they want or need. Autism Winnipeg floor time and RDI is quite specific, and while the group embraces everyone, its main focus is the floor time and RDI therapy.
Autism Manitoba - for parents and caregivers is a fantastic new group designed to group all of us together into one big family, and I thank Crystal for starting this group. I'm hoping it becomes what Autism Winnipeg started to be.
Autism Winnipeg PACE is Mike's (Superdad) and my own baby. It's all about the kids and parents getting together to support one another in person.
So, whatever you like, it's there for the grabbing. Any questions, feel free to contact me.
