I have a young child who is only 4 that has been diagnosed with ASD. What I have noticed about myself is I cry more often than I have ever cried in my life. Most tears are shed in private moments by myself. My tears are a mixture of sadness, fear, happiness, excitement, but most importantly love. I am not certain if this is common and I am not certain if it will become less frequent, but I do know that I have given myself the reassurance that it is okay. I hope that all parents on this journey give themselves the same assurance.
