Hello and Welcome!
My name is Debbie Norman.
I have three children – Will (age 10), Emma (age 9), and Ella (age 3). Ella has autism.
EnduringTheSilence.com is a blog about autism.
How this blog got it’s name:
definition of “endure”:
- to undergo (as a hardship) especially without giving in.
- to regard with acceptance or tolerance.
- to remain firm under suffering or misfortune without yielding.
That is what I am doing. I am enduring the silence. I love my daughter. I accept my daughter. But I am not giving in to the idea that she will never speak to me regularly again. I remain hopeful, in all things.
The posts on this blog will be anything related to autism that I feel like writing about, as we go along this journey. I welcome your comments and thoughts on posts.
Thank you for joining me.
