When it comes to autism parenting, the biggest trap we can fall into is chasing what is “normal for me”. That image we have of the perfect child, what our family should be, and how life should play out. All too often, we find ourselves comparing ourselves to others who we perceive as “normal.”
Tamara K. Anderson is an amazing mom of four children, with two of her boys being on the autism spectrum. She is releasing her emotionally raw and inspiring book “Normal to Me” on World Autism Day, April 2nd, 2019.
NORMAL FOR ME
NORMAL FOR ME is the story about the author hitting rock bottom when she received the diagnosis that her second oldest son was on the autism spectrum. One evening she fell to her knees asking God, “Why can’t we be a ‘normal’ family?” God whispered, “This IS normal for you”. This epiphany began her journey from anguish and grief to acceptance, peace, hope, and joy. This book is ideal for not only families struggling with autism but anyone who has had to face a life detour or help someone along the way.
