Jacqueline Laurita Blogs About Nicholas’ Austism Diagnosis!

Nicholas Laurita

Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jacqueline Laurita has released her first blog for Parenting Magazine to discuss her son Nicholas’ autism diagnosis, and to give advice to other parents who are going through the same thing. Jacqueline recently became a contributing editor to the magazine’s website, and now there’s a preview to Jac’s very first blog.

Jacqueline starts by introducing herself and sharing some of her story and explains how Nick “enjoyed playing by himself and seemed content in his own little world.”

In an emotional video at the RHONJ Season 3 Reunion, Jacqueline shared that Nicholas was no longer able to say, ‘I love you.’ Jacqueline writes, “When Nicholas stopped saying ‘I love you,’ it was devastating. As a mom, when your child starts to talk, hearing those three little words is something you cherish. Losing that broke my heart.”

Next, Jacqueline shares her experience regarding Nicholas’ official diagnosis. “I went home, hugged my husband, and cried until I couldn’t cry anymore,” she said. “I cried for myself; I cried for my husband; I cried for my other kids, and I cried for my Nicholas.”

Jacqueline continues to explain she is positive for the future, and Nicholas is progressing every day. She has changed up Nick’s diet and nutrition and wants readers to know to never feel ashamed. “We don’t ever want him to feel ashamed,” she writes. “My son is a beautiful little boy who is very smart and loving. Autism is one small piece of who he is.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
