RECOVERING VS RECOVERED

Leave a comment

The definition of recovery: 1. A regaining of something lost or stolen  2. A return to health, consciousness.

-Webster’s New World Dictionary

Recovery is a strong word. Annie and Brody are recovering but not recovered.

We should all be able to have our own definition of the word recovery and not get caught up on the word itself or how it “should” be interpreted. There are different levels of recovery just like there are different levels of ASD. Define it any way you want and don’t knock someone else if his or her definition differs from yours.

Our definition of recovery is finding our stolen children and bringing them back to their healthy and full potential. We are determined to regain their health, watch them experience meaningful friendships, love, a career, and independent living.

These goals are what get us out of bed in the morning to continue the fight for our children.  Our love for our children is not connected to these goals… we love them unconditionally, regardless of what they achieve.

A Ventography is about: 1. Encouraging and empathizing with other parents on the autism spectrum. 2. Recycling and simplifying information on the latest autism news and health and diet tips. 3. Asking thought provoking questions designed to make us rethink what we've been told about autism. 4. Helping connect the dots that show, in some cases, autism is more than a brain disorder. 5. Challenging parents to rethink what they've been told, refuse the status quo, and escape the whirlwind of confusion.
