Hello my bloggy friends,

When I got home from work this afternoon I found a letter waiting for me.

A brown envelope…..Errrmmmm

Addressed to, The Parent/Carer of *CAL

I got myself a coffee sat down and contemplated opening it.

For 5 years I have known.

For 5 years I have been concerned.

For 5 years I have been discussing, with SO many different people.

What is SO very obvious for me to see.

TODAY, for the first time, I saw it in black and white, from one Doctor to another.


I can’t tell you how pleased I am that my daughter now has an official label.

Some people reading this may not understand, and I’m sorry if I seem insensitive.

I have been praying and trying so hard to get the help my *CAL needs.

Now I can access that help for my little girl.

Also …the support groups that I have not been able to go to, and I feel such a sense of relief.

I was so excited I ran to *CAL and we had a little jump up down happy-dance.

I said to her, “YAY!!…You’ve got a diagnoses!”

She jumped up and down and smiled and said in her little high voice,

“What does that mean then?”

I said, “Yippy, we can get you extra help because it means you’re Autistic!”

She clapped her hands, smiled more and said,

“Yippy…I’m Autistic, what does that mean then?”

My simple answer to my darling little daughter,

“It means you’re like Mommy, Sweetheart”

Her answer back…….”YAY, I’m like Mommy!”

So we carried on doing our happy-dance. πŸ™‚

  1. I’m glad you can finally get help for her .But 5 years is much too long to wait and wonder what you need to do for her .

  2. This is great news! It’s all down to you, with support from *JB.
    I can just see you happy dancing with *CAL.
    I am so relieved that we can now demand support and that she can begin to understand herself as she grows older; she may still have the same battles as you but she will know why she is different.
    Love you.
    Aust xxxx

  3. There’s happy dancing going on over here too Lees πŸ™‚

    And a lot of hollering and whooping it up too.


    praise God !
