"I have always shielded my son from the media because for me family comes first,” she said while speaking to Word Is.

Esther Wahome disclosed that when they discovered that their son was Autistic it was a very scary moment for her family and it took them 2 years to be able to get diagnosis.

"The name autism was very heavy on me, when we first got the diagnosis; it was this thing that we didn’t know about it. Before we even knew what it was, we totally leaned on God in prayer, and we got the courage to go on,” she said.

The singer also revealed that the hardest part for her was when she had to watch her child cry after she started withdrawing foods he was not supposed to eat.

Hearing him cry for that which I knew I couldn’t give him was the most painful moment for me. It was so difficult for him to understand why we were denying him something he had always been given freely, but we got through it,” she said.

She however said it is a condition that can be managed and his son lives a normal life and she is not afraid of speaking about it because she believes her story can help people out there.

Autism according to Google is a mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by great difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts.
