Something had been Tugging at my gut lately about Lilly, and after walking through Aidan’s “diagnosis stage” I remember always hearing “a mother just knows, follow your gut” so I made an appointment with a neurologist at Children’s Hospital who was absolutely fabulous…… And Lilly got the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder! It’s so strange that feeling you get when a doctor confirms your child has a disability, that feeling of sadness that they have something that may hinder them, happy that you have answers, worried about upcoming tests and specialists, and so many more feelings that are jumbled into that pit in a mothers stomach. As I work through those feelings now knowing both twins are on the spectrum I have good days and bad days but am absolutely dedicated to learning how to become the best advocate my children could ever have.
