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.

Hope. Love. Courage. Strength. Dream. Create. Live. Inspire.

These are the words I created out of the Children’s Miracle Network balloons to display at the Walmart I work at. Every year Walmart sells these balloons to help raise funds for the Children’s Hospital and this year I had the honour of attending the fundraising kick-off event and learning more about this organization. During the meeting they mentioned that their would be a friendly competition of how each Walmart displayed their balloons, and that the children from the hospital would get to pick their favourite. Traditionally, these balloons are hung like garland all over the store, and while that is a great way to show how many donations the store had accumulated, I wanted our local community to be a part of something bigger, something more!


I wanted words that were motivating and encouraging, that would mean something to each person who read them, even if it just made them smile. I was very thrilled when my idea was approved and my vision could come to life!

I’d like to thank all my fellow co-workers who bravely climbed the extremely tall ladder to staples these up for me! Without you, this definitely would not of been able to be shared with everyone!

Thanks for reading,
