At first it was the pain … “I’m sorry to be the one to tell you, but your children are autistic.”(Romanian translation = Îmi pare rău că trebuie să vă spun eu asta, dar copiii dumneavoastră au autism)”.
I was in an inner state of impenetrability; the lady’s words in front of me were so distant from me. AUTISM! I did not know anyone to talk about this, which would give me the hope that my boys would be fine.
What made my children different from the others finally had a name. All I have to do is read about it and find solutions. However, why did not any Romanian say this to me, it has been almost two years since I wonder what is happening to them: they do not talk, they do not play with the other children, they are always preoccupied and seem to be thinking. They are only 3 years old! What can a 3-year-old child think of?
