Evan From AU
My son Evan has a few challenges. He has autism, ADHD and really just struggles with ‘life’ - making friends, having conversations, being ‘present’. I feel so lost as a parent sometimes and don’t know what to do to support him. I blame myself a lot and feel like I could’ve done things differently and he would’ve turned out to be ‘normal’. I know he’s a special boy with his own unique strengths and talents but I worry that he won’t live a normal life one day - he’ll be alone (no friends or partner), no job and will live with us forever. The future is so uncertain and I’d love to be comforted to know that he’ll be OK. He’s our greatest challenge and our biggest reward all wrapped up in one.
