As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

What’s black or white and used all over?

Guess what?! Bryce is getting an iPad 2! Ordered it online and we can’t wait to use it!

We’d like to thank everyone who donated to the Bubbles Make Him Smile Therapy Fund to help raise money for Bryce’s iPad.

iPad 2

He is getting the iPad 2 Wi-Fi 16GB in black.

We decided to get the iPad 2 over the first generation iPad for a couple of reasons, but the main reason was because no one is carrying the first generation iPad anymore, and if they are, that’s the last of the stock and the iPad 2 is taking over the shelves. Good enough reason right? hehe And who are we kidding, by the time you’ve done reading this sentence, iPad 3 will probably be out and iPad 4 in the making. Gotta love technology, eh?

Daniel went to a half a dozen stores trying to find one so we could give it to Bryce right away and I was calling stores from home that were a bit of a drive away, however, no one had any iPad 2 16GB Wi-Fi only. For like $130 bucks more we could of got Wi-Fi plus 3G but it’s not going to be leaving the house and for $100 bucks more we could of got double the GB’s, but we didn’t want to waste that kind of money just to get it now. So we ordered it online Apple’s website and it should arrive mid June.

We’re still debating if we’re going to give it to Bryce on his birthday (July 2) or give it the millisecond that the mail carrier drops it off. But we’re really excited about this and will be counting down the sleeps until it arrives!

We look forward to joining the bandwagon of parents with a child on the autism spectrum using the iPad and blogging about his experiences with it and sharing the apps we use, and all that good stuff so stay tuned for that!

Thanks for reading,
Tanaya

  3. @Modern Mom Redefined ((Kelsi)) We are very excited! This was all made possible by donations from very generous people. Sadly, it's not covered by autism funding, despite all the positive reviews and great tools it has for children with special needs and autism. I hope that changes one day.
