After yesterday, most of my friends probably know that April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day as I was practically spamming my Facebook wall with likes and shares of all sorts of autism related material! I realize that it may have been a bit much but I have a pretty darn good reason – the elder of my two sons was diagnosed with autism last September and the younger one is very likely to be diagnosed with autism too in only a matter of days. Therefore, yesterday was pretty special to me and my family as it was the first time we celebrated the day.
Welcome to my new blog. My name is Ragga, an Icelandic 30 year old, currently living in Denmark with my husband and two sons where we aim to finish our graduate education in the coming summer of 2012. The reason why I decided to create this blog is because in September 2011 our lives as a family changed irreversibly forever when my elder son,4 years of age, was diagnosed with autism. It came as a tremendous surprise and we’ve been coping with the news, trying to adjust to the new reality, ever since.
