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!!
