It's been a long time coming, as you may have guessed from the dwindling number of new posts. I still have plenty of stories, but I no longer feel this is the proper place to tell them.
Ryan is in middle school, and middle school can be a cruel place. Now that all his peers have smart phones and are beginning to explore social media, I imagine the next logical step bullies will take is to conduct background research on their victims to maximize the impact of their taunts. And frankly, my kid doesn't need to make bullies' jobs any easier.
Maybe I'll delete the blog (even though I know nothing on the internet is ever really gone forever), and maybe I won't. But I do not intend to post new material.
Thank you to all who have followed our journey these past nine years. I hope that my writing has helped to soften the world ever so slightly for my baby and other individuals on the spectrum. Keep being awesome.
