I never expected those words to ring so true. But here we are. We've filed guardianship papers, are preparing trusts so family can help the children when they are older - and old - and I've stopping crying. This is a tough road, friends. And I'd be lost without my AofA family, my autism family, and my "real" family meaning those family members who have stuck by us and show their love and care for my girls in so many ways.
OK, maybe I haven't stopped crying just yet.
