No ending story in learning until the day we die. God given brain, opportunity and challenges are the factors that keep us to continue learning about life. Of course it is more to life other than learning for the sake of making money.
The truth is I don’t even know how to begin writing in this blog to share, even to write what is running in my thought for the last couple of months. Just to found out that we are given new opportunities to learn about something else. That is one of our family members is being diagnosed as “Asperger’s Syndrome” ( a form of mild autism) after some testing/analysis done very recently. It is all make sense reflecting the past and the behavior observed and shown recently.
We look at it on the positive side as this is not at all too abnormal as there are individual in this world that was born with it or experience it such as this person. The most important is that this is recognized earlier and we could have a better approach to deal and to bring the best out of this gift of being different…that is for our beloved "lil man".
It is amazing how Allah leads me much earlier to know some blogger's friend who have to face the same challenges and also someone who specialised/studied Autism such as Atenah (seems that we have loads more to share apart from sharing our ups and down of PhD roller coaster...). It is like placing puzzle together through the blog world. Giving one of the example, that is as in Kak Teh's entry on blog, woman, blog!, the power of sharing through blogging..
A note to our beloved lil man,
As you are a precious God given gift to us, both mama & papa will do our best to bring you to your highest potential in every aspect of your life with the capability & limitation that you have. Now that we understand you better and you always make us to understand you better. We understand that you are different and learning about you will be a challenge for both of us as your parent and it will be enjoyable too..
We love you very very much.
We are all together to make the best of our life with guidance from Allah..AMIN
