Autistic step daughter...
So tonight my husband actually broke down in realizing his 6 yr old is autistic. I think he never wanted to admit it.My step daughter frequently acts out and was recently changed on her meds. We thought this was the break through we had been waiting for but alas she had a bad day at summer camp. The Y is threatening to kick her out because she does not do well with change and they go on weekly field trips and they say they can't handle her. To note K(my step daughter) is autistic spectrum. She talks,plays,and tries to interact with other children as much as she can tolerate.
I am tired of people staring at me wondering what is wrong with my step daughter. I wanna scream,"She is autistic, I am not a bad step mom"!
On top of all this I was recently married in Oct 2007 and we got custody of my husbands kids January 24th. I am completely stressed as we became an instant family.I accept my responsibility as a Mother to my step daughters but it gets tough. My husband and I are needing support.
