Our Journey Begins

Our journey started five years ago with, “Hello Sexy.” How would I have known that my life would be where it is today? I honestly think that God had a huge hand in this deal. He saw where we were and knew what was going to take place and intervened before shit it the fan. LOL. Let me show you what God did for me when it comes to true love that is meant for eternity. This story will forever be my, “Notebook”.

Our first hello was breathtaking, omg I can still remember how I smiled so big on the phone hearing your voice for the first time. I actually became addicted to your voice that very moment. You became my drug. We talked about our babies, everyday life, our past, but we talked about us. You made me laugh like I’ve never had before. You made conversation so easy, it was like we had known one another forever.  That day was the beginning to a new journey with the connection of love and friendship.

The day we met for the first time was so amazing, I often relive that night in mind and can’t help but to smile every time. Wow I feel like a little school girl right now.  We had an amazing dinner full of laughs, even the waitress wanted to join in. And that damn tree. That damn tree. Lord that tree……. Well…..                                                   That was the best date, wait no that was my first real date with an amazing man that I feel in love with. And our journey continues.

Along the way we became best friends, we talked, prayed, went through battles together, and now here we are Bonnie and Clyde. Now I know what a true love story is because I’m living mine everyday with you. I often catch myself staring at you thinking God for putting us together, for allowing you to change what was broken in me and you. God knew that we could fix each other and he would fix the rest. And our journey continues with blessings from above.

Now here we are five years later I wouldn’t change anything about it. When I look back on our five years it’s been a blessing from God above. This man stole my heart, gave me the moon and stars, and shows me everyday what love is. The man that I love is also my best friend, my coach, my bodyguard, my everything.  To love is nothing. To be loved is something.  But to be loved by the person you love….. is everything.  And our journey will continue to the end of time.                                    Two Hearts One Love……..

Autism and My Son

What is Autism? That was my first question when I first heard those words,  no one ever prepared me for this road. On August 8, 2017 I was told that my baby, my son, the child I carried for 9 months with no complications has Autism. So, now what do I do? I came home crying! I was mad! I was Angry!! Why did this happen to him? What did I do wrong? Lord please give me the strength to get through this.

Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication, as well as by unique strengths and differences. Autism affects 1 in 68 children in the United States today and some are never diagnosed properly. Some kids have been known to just have anger issues, or they are just slow in learning. Sorry to tell you, but we shouldn’t judge or label our kids like that. Know the signs and symptoms and research all you can.

Before the diagnosis, Kameron was born July 17, 2014 at 9:04 am one of my happiest days. But soon after he became very ill. Kameron could not keep his milk down, me being the mama that I am, I was persistent because i knew something was wrong with my baby. And there it was, he was diagnosed with Pyloric Stenosis at 6 weeks old and  I was told he needed surgery immediately. Oh did I mention there was no sleep then due to colic. Yea, that part.

At the age of 1, he screamed a lot, and boy do I mean a lot! No babbles just screamed. Did not like people at all. Ok signs are showing right, nope, thought it was normal behavior. Kameron was a late crawler and walker, your still thinking you should have known, right? No not at all. At the age of 2 he got worse. Becoming very forgetful, crying a lot, playing alone, isolated, the list goes on. Signs are showing, but I knew nothing of Autism. Not yet anyway. At age 3 he only knew the word mama. Everyone was mama. And now the signs are showing.

The diagnosis……. The day after my birthday. My son has Autism……. Will he ever learn new words, will he ever speak in sentences, will he ever be normal, will he out grow it, will he be able to attend school, will he get married…. OMG….. WHY MY BABY???????? Speech, therapy, MRI’s, CT scans, blood work, meds, no sleep, no appetites, meltdowns, he cries, I cry, he screams, no loud and sudden changes that he doesn’t know about, and the list continues. At times I’m still wondering am i doing everything right? Did I do this and that? How can I make his life easier?

Research, research, research….. that will become your best friend. The sites that i have visited and continue to look on is; Pinterest, Google, great doctors and specialists, along with having family by your side. There is so much research out there you just have to find it. We are now trying to find a Support Group in our community to better educate us and to hopefully grow with an Autism family.

Autistic he may be, but to us he will forever be our Kameron. I will be his voice and i will stand up and fight his every battle till I can’t no longer. Our fight has just begun, but I’m not quitting!! Hold onto my hand as long as you need to baby boy…… I love you Kameron……….
