When Vaibhav was born, he was a normal child, with all the normal milestones. We were very happy, our family was complete. But sadly, fate had something else in store for us. As Vaibhav started growing up, we began to notice abnormalities in his behavior. He wasn’t like other children of his age. Our elder daughter had shown all the development milestones at appropriate ages. But Vaibhav was growing up differently. He would cuddle and sleep by himself, while walking he wouldn’t place whole feet on the ground. He would cry frequently, sleep all through the day, stay awake at night and would stare at the ceiling fan and start yelling. As a mother, it was very hard for me. He wouldn’t recognize me and wasn’t even emotionally attached to me. It was extremely difficult for us to understand his temperament, he wouldn’t understand us either.
