I am sarah. I am married to Paul. We have to biolgoical children Blake 4 and Nathan2. We are lucky enough to have two autistic children. They both are so specail in their own way. We live in CT. In a quite town. We are working on adopiting a little one. As I can no longer have children on my own. I come from a big family and I expect a big family. I think Paul got more than he bargined for when he met me. Guess we should start with that story.
Pauls mom used to be a regular at the pharmacy where I worked. She knew i had a bad break up. That Paul had had one too. So She told me to come and pick her up and we will go out to dinner. Nice. I got there she threw two peices of lasagna on the table adn ran as fast as she could out the door. Nice isnt it. We have been together ever since. He asked me to marry him April 1st. I said no. I didnt think he was for real but he was. The stinker. We were married 15 days later.
August 13 2003 Blake Alexander joined the world. He was a colicy baby. Never happy. Even when being held. He was walking by 7.5 months running and getting into everything. At 11 months old he was taking thing apart and puting them back in working order. It is absolutly crazy. He has always been smart. At 18 months he was throwing a ball up in the air and hitting it like noones business. He is very structrued in his routine. You can not mess with anything. Our soccer clothes to play soccer. Our basket ball clothes to play basketball. Our work clothes for school or acitng like daddy. Baseball clothes to play baseball. Very anal. He can get us anywhere in ct after he has been their once. absolutly brilliant. His ocd is outragous. we have started meds and he is responding wonderfully.
My Nater. He is my pride and joy. I have such love for these boys it really is sicking. He came to us may 3, 2005. He was dignoised a lot sooner than his brother. We have interventions everyday for him. Liz and Kristine come to play for 2 hours a day. Then Bonnie comes and Plays onces a week. She does his speech. We see Donna for occupational therapy for SID. (sensory intergration disorder) We have to brush both boys. They love it. Who would have thunk it.
We are six months into the adopiton process and not everyone is excited about it. I am ok with that. I undstand their worries and concerns. At the same time I believe my little guys would make good big brothers. They are the best of buds. Apparently Blake is the only one who can understand Nateinese. Nate doesnt talk much. he says no and that is about it. we are working on signing. I did just order muzzy italian so maybe he will learn to speak something. We have been doing signing. Signing time is crazy expensive.
So Htis is where you will find the crazy happeings of our household:)
