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.

Help Bryce Defeat Autism

I just wanted to make something clear.

We are not looking for a cure for autism. While a cure would be great, and we’d probably be first in line when that day comes about, we are looking for a way to defeat it. We want to defeat the lack of knowledge and misunderstanding people have about autism, while promoting autism acceptance and awareness.

You can help us defeat autism by printing and colouring our autism awareness ribbon and displaying it. Get your school, co-workers, friends, and family involved. You can even take pictures of your finished work and send them to us and we’ll post them on our website! Together we can spread autism awareness.

You can help us defeat autism by telling someone about autism. Did you know that 1 in 91 children have autism? Chances are you know someone, or know someone who knows someone that knows someone who has autism. The more people that are informed about autism, the more people that understand it and accept it.

You can help us defeat autism by being a friend to someone with autism. You can never have too many friends, right?! After all, someone with autism wants what everyone else wants, to be accepted.

And finally, you can help us defeat autism by forwarding this message to everyone you know. While it may seem like something small, it’s the little things that we do that have a big impact.

Thanks for reading,
