Loving Lawson is a safe place to talk about the triumphs and struggles of parenting a child with autism.

A place where I will be sharing our journey with my 3 year old son and autism.

As of January 2018, we have not officially received a diagnosis, yet.
I feel it is important to disclose this information as I may not always specifically disclose it in every post.

So why talk about my sons autism when it’s not officially confirmed he has it yet?
Because we know he does, his teachers know, his therapists know. It’s kind of obvious. It’s kind of amazing.
It’s definitely an adventure. 

But, the process isn’t easy or fast.
Right now we are waiting for our first appointment, an appointment just to determine if he needs an “evaluation”. More of an introduction appointment I presume.

It has been rescheduled twice, through no fault of ours. And, it will be a 2 hour drive from our home. It’s a day we’ve been waiting for, for a long time. A source of my anxiety, for a long time.

Why share before I know for sure?
It might benefit another mom, dad, or family to share our journey.
Maybe you’re going through something similar, maybe you are just starting to notice things about your kiddo. Maybe you just need some support from people who can understand.
Hopefully by sharing our journey we can help provide some help.
Hopefully we can shed some light and provide some comfort on a topic that, I believe, needs more awareness.

I’d love to hear from you! If you’d like to send me a message or share a story, please contact me here
