Welcome to Luca Bears walk page. We are so glad you are here!!
I once read something pretty similar to this and it really hit home...
Our son Luca was diagnosed with ASD this spring 2022. It felt like my world was crashing in all around me. There was nothing that could have helped to soften the blow of being handed a diagnosis that still has so many question marks surrounding it. Everyone on this journey has a different story. Some stories are exceptionally more difficult than others, but every story matters. This is ours! And what a beautiful journey it has been thus far. Watching you grow, learn, and change every single day is nothing shy of amazing. Luca Bear, there is no doubt in our minds you will grow up to do exceptional things. You are so loved and cared for. We love you more than all the stars in the sky.
I would never change my son from being exactly who he is. But I would change the world for him, to be more accepting and understanding of who he is.
