One by one by one, all three of my children were diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. Little by little by little, my husband and I learned what that meant for our children, for our family, and for ourselves. As we learned about autism, we also learned about the dangers our children would face out in the world. We learned that many people viewed our children as being disposable. We learned that we would have to fight to provide our children with quality of life in the present and that we would also need to fight for their rights to have a future. We did not learn, until it was almost too late, that the danger had already begun, that it was present in our home, and that we would wage the fight of our lives across our dining room table.
