16 Feb Having Coffee & a Sweet Treat
The simple activities such as grabbing coffee with my sister, wasn’t an experience I thought we would have together.
Looking back at the days where it felt like walking on egg shells, tantrums non-stop, aggressive behavior towards herself and others, non-verbal, couldn’t stand to be in crowded places… you all must think I’m crazy. Most of you who know Angie can’t even imagine the stories I share of her past. You look at her now and say, “are you talking about the same sweet coffee & sweet treat loving Angie?”
Ohhhh yes I am. I wish there were ways where I can document back then to show how far she has come since she was first diagnosed with Autism. The struggles of our every day life as a family. But don’t worry, I’ll be sharing our journey with Angie really soon… our “team effort” as a family, the resources, professionals and all those who were part of the woman Angie has grown up to be.
I can’t help but get teary eyed seeing how hard it was having Angie participate in a tea party when we were little, to grabbing coffee and a sweet treat with my best friend!
