This is right from Kassi herself.  She is as strong as they come from being a mother of a child of the spectrum.  Here is here story.

My son James was diagnosed with High functioning autism at the age of 6. I however knew at the age of 3 but because of him being so smart no one would listen. He was diagnosed ADHD at 4, and being autistic at 6.  He was diagnosed with anxiety at 7 and PICA (the repeated eating of non-food items, is the eating disorder most often displayed by children with autism) at 9. He is smart as a whip. I have been a single mother to him and his sister since he was 2.5 years old.

It’s a struggle because you don’t know who you can trust.  Also, who would understand him if he has a meltdown?  The schools don’t seem to understand him and the looks you get when he’s having one in public. Sometimes you just want to take him and crawl under a rock.

I’m thankful that my mother is there to watch him, so I can work, or while I’m at work. If the school calls she can go get him, like she’s had to do many times before.

Would I trade his autism? No, because it makes him who he is. He is a joy to have in my life and he tells you the strangest things but at the same time it’s things that someone might find interesting.
