I wanted to share a little about the journey it has been for my son and I from his first diagnosis with sensory issues at the age of three.

“It's not a hill, it's a mountain as you start out the climb.”
You were first diagnosed with Sensory Issues around the age of three. Around the time these photos were taken. And some days were definitely rougher than others. My heart would break on the days when even something as simple as a seam in your sock, or “fumps” as you called them would cause a meltdown. You simply couldn't handle it. And I couldn't help but think, “what am I doing wrong?”
But since those days we have come a long way! I have put so much time into reading books and getting you the therapies you needed. And it has made such a huge difference. When the additional diagnosis of ADHD came along a few years later, I was ready to learn.
As the years have passed, we have learned so much together. And you are proof that children are so much more than their “labels”. With hard work you are often a straight A student and no longer worried about bumps in your socks. I know the world will not always be “fump” free, but I hope you know that I will be there for you whenever you need me. And I will always be open to learning and growing as well!
