I am feeling vulnerable. The corona virus is still active in the United States. My life and my families life has changed. No gym. No school. No library. No parks. Here in Georgia, my family and are practicing the same social distancing we did in Charlotte and New York. Having children with autism has me and my husband keep our children away from crowded places. We stay clear of public places when we know there will be a lot of people there. We usually visit parks, play grounds, and trails early in the day. We enjoyed going to Target when there aren’t people all throughout the store. We have lived like this for almost 10 years. Although my family might disagree, our immediate and extended family doesn’t engage with my family or my children. I can admit that I want my family to do more relating. I have visions of family that loves each other, forgives one another, and builds together. Our reality is what it is right now but I do believe in the power of Love to transform old and worn out ways of living. I am feeling like my heart is exposed. I want more for my children and the rest of the world is shut down. My love and care is still working though. I have done a great job keeping my happiness in tact for the last 2 months. I will continue to do my best with my girls and my husband. This is only a moment. On a positive note, I do sense some strength in my vulnerability. I am thinking up ways to reach and teach my children. If your looking for fun things to do with your nonverbal, autistic child, I’ll share some of the ideas I’ve come up with next time.

I am one amazing human being named Willa Strong. I actually wrote my first book at 9 years old, it was called "The Kidnap". Now at 40 years my vision to be one of the best writers in the world is being fulfilled with the start of this blog. I am happy to give a voice to my three special children with autism and our family. Their struggles and their success have inspired me to give this life all that I have. Thank you for the support Strong-Walker Tribe. I love you! View more posts
