So I've been quiet for a long, long time. But this morning I saw this, and it hit me hard in a way. Someone is still reading. So I need to think about what's next for this blog, and for the story of our lives.
Long story short, we are fine. Far beyond what we would have imagined in the early days, but still wrestling with the many trials and joys. It's hard, I should say, but good.
So I need to think about this; about coming back and writing the post that's been forming itself in my mind for many months.
In the meantime, here's a preview of where we are. Isaac is seven now, a second-grader in full inclusion. Our issues have shifted to a different focus: the social rather than the pure communicative. We laugh a lot, and there are also many rough and prickly moments, and discussions about what we do when we have "big feelings."
Thank you, Parenting editorial board. I am honored.
