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.

I saw this campaign online from Autism Spectrum Australia and had to share it: #aDifferentBrilliant. Watch the video below and share it if you love someone with autism!

A Different Brilliant

I am like the gentle breeze and the hidden rays of the sun, that caress and warm your skin. You know I am there because you feel me but do you see the real me? I hear things differently, The humming wings of the floating bee can sound like the roll of thunder. I seethings differently, When you sometimes see problems, I see solutions. I feel things differently, the morning songs of the birds can feel like nature’s orchestra moving the earth. I am the impossible rainbow whose colours give birth to endless shades; easy to look at, hard to define. Walk in my shoes a while and know that while those steps are mine to take, join with me and celebrate, because like you I am brilliant, I am different. I am the spectrum, a different brilliant.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Today we decorated our Christmas tree!

Sure, there’s 20 something days before Christmas, but hey, if it makes you happy, why not!? I’d have my tree up all year long if I could!

When do you put up your Christmas tree? Leave a comment or let us know on our Facebook page.

Thanks for reading,
Tanaya and Bryce

Bryce can read!

Over the years Bryce has been learning how to read and write with the help of his incredible support staff at school. I am so proud of him!


In this video Bryce is reading pages from a book he made at school from his favourite story, "The Robot and Mr. Mole" from Starfall. Starfall is a free website that teaches children how to read and write by using games and phonics.

I highly recommend this site!
