Oh I am so very excited I simply MUST share my joy with you all!!!
I have mentioned before that we have been trying for YEARS to get my son Aiden "officially" diagnosed with Aspergers or anything else for that matter. We have had dozens of assessments done but each one only assessed PART of Aiden's issues and they all say things like "Aiden most likely has Aspergers and Sensory Integration issues" or "we believe that Aiden fits the profile of Aspergers" etc. Nothing definite.
We have been on a waiting list for the only centre to officially diagnosis Autism spectrum disorders (amongst other things) in our province- it is a year or more long waiting list and we have been waiting for about 5 months already. We are actually very lucky to be on the list at all since they usually only work with children age 5 and under. They basically let us on the list because I have documented proof that I have been trying to get Aiden help since he was 3.
When we decided to move I figured I would have to start over again with Aiden's assessment. I had called medical professionals in our new location and they basically told me nothing but an "official diagnosis" would count.
I was very discouraged!
But God is good and He reminded me that He cares for Aiden and can take care of things like assessment appointments! Even when it seems impossible.
I got a phone call today from the centre and they are moving Aiden's appointment up SEVEN whole months to February 24 so that we can have it done before we move!!
I am so thakful! God really is so good because honestly people? That is a miracle. They are actually making an extra space for him just because they didn't want us to have to start over again! Aiden turns 7 the end of April and they want his diagnosis in place before then.
I am so happy.
Lesson for today? God really does care for us. We just have to trust Him!
