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.

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


  1. Awww it's always so great when you can do little things to make your kids happy. Trace asked for a wii and FD's mom came through this year and finally we caved allowing the boys to have one.

    I love the grin on Bryce's face. Merry Christmas and a very Happy new year girl from our family to yours! :)

  2. OOhhh! A boxing ring! I don't know what I was thinking, but this wasn't it. Silly me. He looks really happy and satisfied, you did a great job! It is so good that you recognized that he likes to draw, and the good thing about that is that he will be able to express himself through the visual arts. I want to believe that there is a huge talent hidden behind each case of autism, and it needs to be nurtured and let loose - whatever makes him happy! :)
    Thanks for bringing back a bit of the Christmas ambiance with these pictures!
    Hugs, Flora
