World Autism Awareness Day

 Today is World Autism Awareness Day.

2 Years ago our 2nd oldest was diagnosed with Autism...at the time we scoffed, like many parents do. Now, we see it and wonder how we ever doubted, it totally fits. 
We've come to accept and love {most of} our little guys quirks and specialties. 

Still, many days are challenging. Very challenging. 

Support Autism Speaks : be a voice, make a donation, wear blue...visit HERE for more details on how you can help/love/support families on this journey.

  1. I am wearing blue today! As a teacher I encounter many families like yours... with LOVELY children who just don't fit the 'norm'. I know, from an outside kind of knowing, that it is a challenge, but how blessed your son is to have parents have come to accept and love him just as he is! And how blessed you are to be able to learn to love in a new way. Blessings to you all as you continue this journey!
