I am over at the Hopeful Parents website today writing about changing the way we think about parenting an Autistic child
Shakespeare in Hamlet says that "Nothing is good or bad.. its our thinking that makes it so" and I find this especially true of Autism Parenting .

Brilliant as always.
Another great post K!
What a lovely, lovely thought. Our journey has certainly been as much about changing our perspective as parents as it has been about Billy's changes and development. I'm gonna go check out Hopeful Parents now...
