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.

Follow my blog as I share my life and my experiences as a person who loves someone with autism.

Together we CAN make a difference!

Saturday, April 12th, 2014 marked the 3rd Annual Canucks Autism Network (CAN) Family Festival. CAN provides year-round, innovative, high quality sports, recreational, social, and employment related programs for individuals and families living with autism, while building awareness and capacity through community networks across British Columbia. The Family Festival hosts an autism walk, live entertainment, special guests, food, and family-friendly activities!

My mom and sister joined us this year to show their support, and of course we brought our bubble blowers!

With the exception of the really long wait for food vendors, the event was a success. The weather was beautiful, the sun was shining, the atmosphere was powerful and full of love and compassion. Of course, their were a lot of bubbles!

Thank you to all the volunteers for keeping us safe on the walk and for taking the time out of your day to show your support!

Check out our Facebook page for more pictures! Oh, and if you took pictures of our bubbles please feel free to share them on our Facebook page too! :)

Special thanks to Dee, Tina, and Alex for all their love and continued support!

#Autism now affects 1 in 68 children

On March 27th, 2014, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued the newest autism prevalence statistics: 1 in 68 children. 1 in 42 boys.

autism 1 in 68 children

As scary as this number is, which will continue to grow, it's a blessing in disguise. To me it means more families are getting a diagnosis. Getting answers. Getting help. Increasing awareness.

As we enter April, National Autism Awareness Month, let’s continue to push and focus on autism acceptance. Our children depend on us to be the voices they may not have and the hope that they need to grow up and be part of the future.

1 in 68. The numbers don’t lie. We need to support each other now more than ever.
