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.

Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing Day! :)

Bryce’s Christmas presents had a little bit of a theme this year. We focused his gifts on his favourite thing right now: Boxing rings! Also a couple of gifts were for his favourite thing to do ever: Draw! Bryce loves to draw!

When Bryce started to open his boxing related gifts, he got really excited. Like, the anticipation was killing him. Every time we walked past the toys section in Walmart he would point out this boxing ring and would say, “Want boxing ring!” and we knew that was going to be one of his Christmas presents. As he started to open his stocking, I think he knew! (His stocking had the wrestler figurines in it.)

We tried to capture his excitement on film! We hope you can see how happy he was! Look at that smile! Love it!

From our family to yours, we’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

From Bryce, Tanaya, and Daniel

Gingerbread house with daddy

One of our family traditions come Christmas time is making a gingerbread house. We got one of those pre-built gingerbread houses (which saves a lot of hassle and headache) and Bryce decorated it, with a little help from daddy.
