Feeling sad.

When W was 2 we decided he needed a sibling. A permanent playmate. Someone who will always be there. 

This was before we suspected that he might be on the spectrum. 

Got pregnant just after W’s 2nd birthday. 

Fast forward to December 2016 and we had a baby boy. Now here we are 4 months later and not only does W want absolutely nothing to do with his brother he’s actually scared of the baby. W will cry and run away if his brother touches him. 

It makes me sad because the baby adores W. It makes me sad to think that W might never warm up to his brother. I know W is afraid of children his age or younger but I was hoping that it would be different with his brother. 

I have a friend who has 3 kids and all 3 are on the spectrum and her kids are just like any other kid when it comes to their siblings, sometimes friends sometimes not.

Hopefully it will improve with age. 

Just feeling sad today and needing to write.

I've been through a lot in my life and I've realized that sharing my story helps me to deal with things. ~ so I have started this partially to help myself deal with the various emotions as they arise but also to help others who may be going through the same thing. This is our story of living with autism. this story actually started before W was diagnosed.
