Ethan was born on a cold November morning in 2012. He was a happy, smiling infant – but very quiet. As he grew we realized he was missing milestones, in particular with speech but also with gross and fine motor capabilities. At his 2 year old well-baby visit it was obvious that Ethan had a delay but the extent was still unknown. We enrolled him in Help Me Grow, started him in therapy, and prayed. At 3 years old we received the formal diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Type II – and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD.) It is hard to express the fear of the unknown like that moment. Will he grow up ok? Will he have friends? Will he go to college – have his own family? You panic on levels you didn’t know existed. You grieve for the life you fear he will never have.
