4 years ago today, at the age of3 and a half, Reece was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (Pervasive Developmental Disorder- Not Otherwise Specified, or PDD-NOS). I took the following video on her 3rd birthday to show our new pediatrician. I had just come to the realization around that time that "something" was going on with her development that couldn't be explained away by her being the baby of the family, everyone talking for her, or us spoiling her thus causing the 2 hour long tantrums.
I share this video today so everyone can see how far she has come!
For the first time in 4 years, I didn't wake up crying on this day.
