  1. Thanks for writing this. One of my biggest challenges has been to not pull my hair out and say “where have I failed him…..I didn’t raise home to do/not do x, y, z.” There are things that he does, ways that he responds or reacts to things, that have be confused, hurt, disappointed, frustrated. The further we travel down the path of testing for aspergers and processing disorders, the more things are making sense to me, the more I understand why, the less I unnecessarily blame myself and feel guilt-ridden.
    The more I realise that “your baby is a blank canvas” is a myth.

    1. I’m sorry you’re having to go through that, but also happy to hear you’re becoming more aware – that makes me smile 🙂
