MEET THE GANG!!! This is us, ideally we would have a picture of all 4 of us together, but lets be real.... I have an ADHD child and an ASD child.... So family portraits is something we will try in a few years!
Angel is 9 years old, he is currently under asd assessments, we know he has ADHD and Dyslexia, possible Dyspraxia. He loves legos and is obsessed with Star Wars even though he has only seen one movie 😂.
He is a great child, very caring and passionate about changing the world, also he says he will build and dome in mars and a teleporter to go to Mars.
Kalel is 4 1/2 years old. We recently got his diagnosis after fighting for 2.5 years.
We are still fighting to get him under an OT as he presents severe SPD. He is non verbal and requires full time attention as he has no sense of danger.
He is loving and his laughter is contagious. Loves paw patrol and toy story 3, not 1 and 2, just 3!
And then is us. Mom and Dan.
I became a mom at the age of 23 and its been amazing but very difficult. Me and my kid's father separated and about 8 months ago Dan came into our lives. He has been a great support for me and the kids. Angel and Kalel love and adore him, and Dan as well. We are always learning and trying new things, the typical trial and error. Most things have worked others not so much.
Its an overloaded experience. I sometimes feel my brain is fried from so much info and stress.
But I put myself in their shoes and they are overloaded of sensory input, emotions, information and life in general.
What is very common and normal for others, its not the same for them.
Now you have met us, you know who we are.... There is a lot more coming.
I hope this can help other parents.
