Per Yun’s request I am taking time out of our lovely day to write an update. I apologize for not doing this before, but believe me when I say life hasn’t been this good before. Alex is loving and living life as only he can, he is talking up a storm, laughing, singing, telling jokes, playing pranks on mom and dad, you name it, he does it. It is just beautiful to wake up everyday to a very cheerful “good morning mom, get up”. No matter how tired I am, hearing his voice gives me immense energy to get up and try to conquer the world once again.
He has been asking to go back to school as he says he misses his friends, yeah you read that right, his friends. I had an IEP meeting with the school before we left for California, He will be rejoining school this September. Alex is more social then I ever dreamed he could be, he is saying hi to everyone and anyone he is attracted to. I say “attracted” as he choses very wisely who he socialize with. You see, Alex is very intuitive, he knows good people when he sees them. He’s the best guide I’ve ever had when it comes to choosing friends. Alex can sense peoples energy and vibes, as crazy as that sounds it’s true. Alex loves happy people, people with good vibes, good intentions, real kind people, he knows exactly who they are. We have been working with a wonderful woman who does ever energetic work you could say, she has helped me discover things/abilities about Alex I had no idea he possessed. As cool as this is, it’s both a curse and a blessing to be able to feel people emotions as much as Alex does. Why you ask? Well because if we are at a place where there’s unhappy people, mad, uncomfortable, Alex can pick that up and it affects him. When he’s with people he likes and that like him he is the happiest ever. If you can get a chance to do energetic work with your child, I suggest you do it, you’ll be amazed at what you can find out about your child.
About two weeks ago we took the kids to California, we drove and it was quite interesting at times and hair pulling at others. 16 hours in a car with 3 children isn’t easy let me tell you, but we did it and Alex was the best behaved one of the kids. Santi on the other hand, OMG!!!!! While in California Alex had a hard time the first few days, it was up and down but we made it. He loved the beach and the rides at the beach specially. He wanted to ride a huge roller coaster but this momma was not about to get on with him, I’m a big chicken when it comes to heights. We got to meet a mom and her lovely son whom I’ve been talking to for some time on Facebook. Alex had a blast on the rides with him, I loved watching them both smile as they rode.
We have been back home for about 2 week now and Alex couldn’t be happier. We’ve had two super fun weekends with play dates at new friends houses. Julie started taekwondo back I’m January, I followed soon after. This has brought so many amazing souls into our lives. We’ve been blessed with such amazing families which we can call friends now. Alex has found a little friend thanks to taekwondo, he is Julie’s partner in crime and the first child to ever say he wanted to be Alex’s friend. This brought tears to my eyes as I have been waiting for this day for far too long. Watching Alex playing with him has been quite a blessing. He and Julie play everyday now, witnessing this is pure bliss. I couldn’t wake up to anything better than hearing those two laughing and role playing to scenes from movies or the “kids next door” which is their new favorite show.
Alex’s personality is coming out more and more daily, he plays pranks on me and then laughs hysterically. Followed by “mom I am funny”, yes you are my son, yes you are. I could write for hours about how great he is doing, seriously I could. Life is great now, recovery is much better than I ever imagined it. I am the happiest mother on the block, I can now sit out in my porch and have coffee without a worry in the world. I know my son is living the life I always dreamed off, he is living life, key words!
Wishing everyone out there the same healing we have been able to achieve. God is good, god is always with us, ask and you shall receive. Hope and healing, may we all find the way to it.
