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.

Spooked by Halloween

Tonight we went to Bryce’s schools Halloween party. We carved a pumpkin, had some treats, and enjoyed the spooky music and costumes. Bryce was afraid of all the kids that were dressed up, regardless of their costumes. He kept saying, “Scary, scary,” even to his classmates. He stayed shy behind me and Daniel during the party.

I hope that it was just a little overwhelming for him, and come Halloween he will be prepared for trick or treating.

Thanks for reading,


  1. oh dear my lewis (6) just hates anything like this ~much too scary for him ~hates any kind of dressing up ~although just loves mario ~looking at your pic ~ even having that costume would not change his mind.
    for halloween we dress up ~but lewis likes to hand out the sweets at the door (in normal clothes ) ~gosh the outfits i have bought him to wear ~ all up in the loft never worn!!!
    his older brother has AS ~loves dressing up as scary as possible ~so you can imagine the tears from both sides getting the right balance!!
    hope you all enjoy halloween ... we have bonfire/guy fawkes night on friday with fireworks everywhere here in england~going to be a nightmare for lewis....... oh every day is a adventure isn`t it??
