My daughter turns 5 years tomorrow. I am ecstatic that she will be going to kindergarten this fall. I think the full time schooling will assist her. The school that she has been accepted to is specialized for kids on the spectrum. The student to teacher ratio is really low, I am glad because she needs small classes at this point in order to thrive.
5 years ago today, I was being induced. I was so anxious to see my daughter. I thought of how we would be doing girly things. I thought of the tea parties, dances and silly conversations we would have. Things didn’t turn out the way I planned.
I watched the son rise program movie called A miracle of Love. I really loved the movie because it called parents to engage their children and enter their world in an attempt to “pull them out”. The underlying things in this program is LOVE and ACCEPTANCE. The program founders believe that once a child on the spectrum is able to engage socially, everything else will follow. Raun Kaufman, one of the founders was fully recovered in the 70’s due to this whole program.
After the movie, I reviewed my daughter’s situation. She has numerous behavioral issues and sometimes it is easier to give her the Ipad to calm her down. I think this further puts her into her social isolation. As much as she has made great strides, she still needs to exclusively be in our world and not teeter totter between hers and ours.
I spoke to my husband about the son rise program. We do not have money to go for the complete training, so I thought of coming up with my own version of the program. I am excited because I know that son rise has LOVE and ACCEPTANCE as one of the foundations of their program. Truly, LOVE conquers all. We know that from the word of God. God gave us his only begotten son because he LOVED the world. He gave him to us so that we don’t die but have everlasting life.
I love you my dear, you shall be fully recovered.
