I don't know if I've ever commented, but I love your blog…and have followed your journey and Jim's journey with Charlie since he was probably about 8 or 9, when we got my daughter's diagnosis. I want to thank you for sharing your experiences with those of us who continue to navigate autism's sometimes choppy waters. Our paths may be different, but it's always so reassuring to hear others' experiences.

And I wanted to add that I know what you mean (about the photo post). We had a computer die on us awhile back and it was necessary to reinstall our digital photos. We literally saw our daughter's life "flash before our eyes". It was strange and amusing at the same time. Seeing all those experiences captured in those rapid snapshots was kind of amazing! :)

It was beyond wonderful to read your message! Since Charlie was 8 or 9, wow -- the photos I've been looking through are of such a little guy! I used to feel a bit sad seeing them thinking of what I was thinking then (many of the photos are 'before autism diagnosis') but now I'm seeing the as a record of how Charlie has always been Charlie.

I was afraid you'd write that you lost your digital photos in the reinstallation! Hope she is doing really well plus, plus.

So good knowing you've been reading!

Warmest wishes from Kristina
