The day the doctors uttered those words that felt like a sledgehammer to our hearts. “Your daughter has autism.”

I can still remember the moment so clearly. It felt like everything stopped. The room felt small, and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. It was like a giant weight landed on us, making it hard to breathe.

I looked at my husband, and we both felt so sad. We didn’t know what this meant for our little girl. We had so many questions and worries. Would she be okay? What kind of life would she have? It was all so overwhelming. Leaving the doctor’s office, the world seemed different. It was like everything was muted and far away. We realized that things were going to be different from what we expected.

We knew that there would be a lot of things we needed to do to help our daughter. Therapy, changes, and lots of unknowns were ahead of us. But we promised ourselves that we’d do whatever it takes to support her. Writing this now, I still feel the sadness in my heart. I miss the dreams we had for her. But at the same time, I know that we’ll find a way through this. It’s a hard day to remember, but it’s also the start of a new chapter full of love, strength, and learning to understand our daughter in a different way.
