I am a mother of five children. That is what I wanted to be more than anything in the whole world. I thought I wanted 6 children. You can imagine how I felt when my first child had Autism. She was a beautiful child but would not let me cuddle her and she cried all the time. Some days I didn't even get dressed. Thankfully my husband had a lot of experience with Autism and my daughter was only mildly impaired. My husband knew just what to do and my little darling progressed beautifully. At that time I thought maybe one child was enough. But, the children didn't stop coming and we soon had five. Life became really complicated partly because my third child was hyperative.
