HUFFINGTON POST -- Our first child, Carsten, was the typical child at each checkup, hitting all the milestones and even advanced for his age. We knew we wanted to continue our family, and our second child, Jaden, was born in 2005. In 2007, I attended San Francisco State University to receive my Bachelor of Arts. I was able to put both Jaden and Carsten in pre-K on campus. I was receiving my degree and my children were attending an amazing preschool; it was a win-win in my book. After two months into the program, Jaden’s teacher (coincidently named Amber) reached out to me. That is when the diagnosis journey began.
