Thank you so much for all of your comforting words! It really does help me to realize that I can get through this with my boys. I also realize that there are many things that could be more difficult and trying to deal with. I am grateful that these are my trials.
Just an update, I went to the Dr. today to get Myles' ears checked out. Everything is normal. (Which is great.) So, my next move is to contact the Early Intervention place that helped Asher.
I was talking to the Audiologist about my situation with my boys. He told me that he had dealt with a lot of Autistic patients whose parents had brought them to him for very similar reasons. I said to him "You know, it usually runs in families and it is usually more prominent in boys." He told me that he actually knew a family that had five boys, four of them were different levels of Autistic. Wow. I tried not to cry right there in the office.
After talking to Sterling about it, I realize that I am very blessed that Asher is so high functioning. Sure it is hard at times, but, isn't parenthood hard regardless!? And Myles, well, we still have that road ahead of us. We have not even confirmed that he will be like his brother. After all, Myles does show promising behaviors that Asher never displayed at his age such as eye contact, pointing, emotional contact, and babbling. And, just the fact that I am having another boy does not mean that he will be like his brothers.
So, I feel bad for even complaining out loud. I know that there are stronger people out there in the world dealing with trials that I could never take on. I also know that my trials are meant for me but, I cannot make it through them without the help of the Lord. (And sweet friends who leave wonderful words of encouragement on my blog!) Thank you for all of your kindness!
