The autism “rollercoaster”… « Lisa Ackerman – Real Help Now

Oh how i love reading other blogs and sharing the exact same feelings as some of the other parents out there. I just love the way Lisa Ackerman say’s, “It’s all about keeping my eyes on the prize.

While the parenting roller coaster is hard for everyone, autism throws some wicked curves on the track. But hanging on- especially for that precious child I am raising – is worth the effort and the fear. There are dips on the track when my motivation fails and the fear overwhelms (and that happens more than often.) But then i throttle back, find some courage and wait for the day when David learns something new, smiles at me, throws a big hug around my neck, makes a new friend, or asks his dad when he can start dating girls. And i will remember what a huge accomplishment it is that he can do ALL of these things, when there was a time we were told he would do none of them. Ever. It is all about keeping my eyes on the prize- my beautiful sons and family!

I'm a warrior mom to nothing but boys! I am the only girl in my house which means i'm the queen. I'm a 30 something, Chicana, a Warrior mom, Advocate, Marketing Director, a Daughter, a Sister, a Military Mom, a Tia, a G-ma, a Friend, a Chacon, an Espinosa, a McNiel #Huelga #Resist I'm a mom that buy's "organic" "green" & "made in the USA!" My hubby calls me: "Mi Amor", "Mi Vida", "Mi Corazon", "Babe" or "McNiel" and my son's call me: "Mom" or "Mama". I love social media, laughing, smiling, gardening, decorating, traveling (when i can) and of all things: cleaning my house! I like going for rides on the Harley's, colorful tattoo's, eBaying & browsing Etsy as often as i can, fighting for a cause, & empowering myself and those around me. I have a great job at Poverello House as the Director of Volunteer Services. I have met and continue to meet individuals at Poverello House who will remain a special part of my life. I truly learn something new everyday!
