Elijah seems to be thriving in ABA and preschool. He is so happy these days, calm and content and happy. He's busy and he loves it. He soaks in all of the extra attention he's getting.
Change is never easy. Sending our boy to preschool hasn't been easy for me, nor has inviting multiple people in our house to do ABA therapy. Not easy, but it is the right thing to do for Elijah. I'm learning that as a parent sometimes you must do what is best for your child, even if that something is difficult (or even painful) for you.
I have to let go of what I thought parenthood would be like and let our life unfold in front of us. As I do, I see what a beautiful thing it is. It's different than I had imagined, but it's just as amazing as I had thought it would be.
