The ride home
I was determined that this was only going to be a minor set back and that there was no way this was going to as devastating as they seemed to make it. Besides the autism I knew about was the kind where the poor person couldn't even make eye contact or there arms were flapping around .. No way this was what they diagnosed , defiantly need a second opinion. The more I thought about it the more i wanted to get home get on the computer and start my investigation. I was in such a state , getting home was all i could think of. That's when the siren went off and the flashing red lights behind me ....speeding i presumed . The officer pulled up and noticed i was flustered and anxious . Asked if everything was OK ? ...well we just found out our son has autism after 8 hours of testing . His face went from suspicion to complete understanding. My nephew was just diagnosed , handing back my licence. I asked how old he was he said 3 years old. Good luck was all he said with an understanding and empathy of what we were about to deal with.
