15 Quotes Only Autism Moms Will Understand

Final thoughts

Few things compare to raising a child with autism. Through the journey, there is much to be learned about your children, about your family, and of course, about yourself.

Each day is a new experience and a new learning opportunity. You will have ups and downs, challenges and triumphs — but at the end of the day, remember that you are your child's inspiration. Lead by example in your behavior, attitude, thoughts, and emotions. Your child is an individual, but in addition to being their role model, work with them as a team to really make them shine.

"Our experiences are all unique. Regardless, I do believe that it is important to find the beautiful. Recognize that there is bad, there is ugly, there is disrespect, there is ignorance and there are meltdowns. Those things are inevitable. But there is also good." - Erin McKinney
