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.

#Autism now affects 1 in 68 children

On March 27th, 2014, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued the newest autism prevalence statistics: 1 in 68 children. 1 in 42 boys.

As scary as this number is, which will continue to grow, it's a blessing in disguise. To me it means more families are getting a diagnosis. Getting answers. Getting help. Increasing awareness.

As we enter April, National Autism Awareness Month, let’s continue to push and focus on autism acceptance. Our children depend on us to be the voices they may not have and the hope that they need to grow up and be part of the future.

1 in 68. The numbers don’t lie. We need to support each other now more than ever.

Thanks for reading,
