Pervasive Developmental Disorder

PDD. That was the diagnosis for my 6 year old daughter yesterday. Along with several others.

In other words, she's on the autism spectrum.

That's the very short version of a very long story. I'm exhausted. I am spent emotionally, physically and spiritually. I told my husband that I want to pray and tell God that whatever lesson I'm supposed to learn, to just let me know, and I'll get right on it!

I don't think it works that way, but I sure wouldn't mind trying. Anyway, I am numb, and can't think about it much more, so I am just giving myself some time over the weekend to let it sink in.

Tomorrow is a new day, right?

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. You are an outstanding mother, you are a strong person, and you have a lot of friends who will be there for you. If there is anything I can do for you don't hesitate to ask. I know I am far away, but I am here for you!

You can do it. You have experience as a mom and you need to share it with others who you can help. Loves from afar.
