My blog title, “Learning to Love My Dinosaur,” was inspired by my son who lived as a dinosaur for so long.  When it was discovered that his dinosaur self was actually communicating with us, my world changed.  I entered this world with him and began to understand my son in different and unique ways.  I always loved him in-spite of the autism!  He was my first child and the one who made us a family.  I didn’t always love the autism.  I had to learn to first accept all of him and then I could love all of him.  My hope is that our story can help you to understand, accept and embrace your loved ones with autism too.  Welcome to the journey!!
