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’d like to start this year (my first post of the year at least) with a video I saw on my Facebook newsfeed wall today (shout out to Bikers For Autism for posting it!)

This video was created by Kulture City, a non profit organization with the mission to create a world where all individuals with autism and their families are accepted and treated equally.

It is the most inspirational, the most brilliant, the most amazing video that I have ever seen that supports, encourages, empowers, and emphasizes the importance of autism acceptance.

I urge you to watch it, share it, and be a champion!

Every child deserves a champion.


“Imagine if simply because your child doesn’t know how to socialize with other children, the world outcast’s your son or daughter as the wee one.

People start to whisper about you as a parent. You’re called the ‘bad parent’.

People start to ban you from children’s play dates because your child is just ‘too hard work’.

Enough eyebrows get raised about your child that you’re referred to child physiatrists or your child is placed in the fish bowl for 7 months. As all the experts stare at the strange ways that he or she moves.

If there is one thing I know for certain it is that this has to stop!

The impossible is truly possible. There are so many great stories and examples of kids who weren’t talking until they were nine, who were banging on the wall until they were 10, who are doing constructive things today.

These kids can learn. These kids can achieve. The possible is possible for them.
But we have to advocate for them.

How powerful would our world be if we had kids who were not afraid to take risks who were not afraid to think and who had a champion.

EVERY CHILD DESERVES A CHAMPION, an adult who will never give up on them!

Who understands the power of connection! And insists that they become the best that they could possibly be!”

hero:KULTURE is a move to create acceptance in a society where children with autism have to fight for their rights. The right to be educated, to be employed, and even to be fundamentally accepted as a member of society. It is the chance for someone to step forward and be a champion for these children.
