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.

Farewell for now.

We appreciate all the support we have received since we started this blog in March 2010 but between our personal life and professional life, we are just not able to maintain it.

Please enjoy previous blog posts and we apologize if their are any broken links as I haven't maintained this blog in a long while. Farewell for now.

Thanks for reading,

Autism is about getting your community involved!

Today me and Bryce went to the Vancouver Walk Now for Autism Speaks 2015! Autism is about getting your community involved! It’s about inclusion! It’s about awareness! It’s about acceptance! It’s about support! Today was just a friendly reminder that there are so many people that love someone with autism. Was super great to see the super brilliant, super sweet, and super talented, Kyle of Banta Music, my dear friends for life, Lorrie and Harmony, who are an amazing mother/daughter duo who supports and volunteers for countless charities and organizations just because they have huge hearts ((hugs)), and my one and only favourite photographer, Justin of JR Media Group (the guy who took this picture!) Thanks for coming out to show your love!

Just wanted to give a couple shout outs to organizations that I am a huge supporter of and so thrilled to see them today!

Much love to the Snug Vest team!

Sadly there are a ridiculous number of companies that make ‘must-have’ products just to profit off of a diagnosis, and as parents we can’t put a price tag on anything that we are brainwashed to believe will make our child's life just a little bit easier, so we get sucked into it and drop thousands of dollars and get no results. The Snug Vest is not one of these companies! If you love someone with autism, sensory processing disorder, or anxiety then please check out my Snug as a Bug review and order one of these and see how deep pressure therapy works!

Much love to the Canucks Autism Network (CAN)!

They are the very definition of inclusion! CAN provides year-round, innovative, high quality sports, recreational, arts, and social programs for individuals and families living with autism, while building awareness and capacity through community networks across British Columbia. They are amazing!

While the venue wasn’t the greatest as we were once again tucked away in the corner away from any bystanders, publicity and promoting was very minimal, and there wasn’t a huge attendance compared to previous years, it was still very nice to see all the support from the community at the Vancouver Walk Now for Autism Speaks! Till next year WNFAS!
