Michelle, thanks for the reply on my original post. We both have 2 sons where the older one is named Tyler (my Tyler (Dec 16/99) is 2 years and 11 months older than Jason (Nov 7/02)The funny thing is I had Jason named "Nathan" right up until about my 8th month of pregnancy. I love the name and also like Nate.
It ultimately was changed to Jason as my husband has a colleague named Nathan and every time we said the name for our son someone would make a reference to other Nathan in a not so nice manner!
I never dreamt I would be praying my son has a higher functioning autism disorder. Because he started out with a gross motor delay and eventually speech dropped. I know he cannot be classified as Aspergersbut I am "envious" of those with Aspergers children...go figure...isn't it amazing how life works like that.
Jason's ST believes Jason will likely talk again, he has all the "tools" and still does a lot of jargon and no oral motor issues. Time will tell. Again, I am bargaining with a higher power, okay you gave me a son with asd, can you at least let him be verbal?
I am sure everyone on this board has gone through these power struggles with fate. Just wanted to chat and comment on our childrens names.
