I wouldn't be without this site, and the wonderful people who bring it to life every hour of every day.
Thanks to ASDf, my understanding of my daughter has grown and continues to grow the more I read about others, and share my own experiences. The confidence I have in myself as her Mum is also increasing as the support of everyone on here cushions me through the bad times, and raises me up high when things are going well.
I feel part of a genuine community who make caring for each other top priority.
The face-to-face meetings have brought me some truly lovely new friends, and with them, friends for my daughter too. I consider these generous, compassionate, inspirational people to be a part of my family.
