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 really, really, really, really, really, really LOVE you!

Today was another Saddest. Day. Ever.

Today was Bryce’s last day of school and we had to say goodbye to his two Education Assistants (EA), Ms. C and Ms. M.

Ms. C and Ms. M were so incredibly supportive throughout the year and we will miss them both! Bryce has learned so much this year and had many accomplishments and I know a lot of it is because of his support staff, his teachers, and his amazing classmates. I am forever thankful!

To celebrate the last day of school there was an end of the school year dance and me and Bryce danced together. When this song came on, I couldn’t resist...

End of the year School Dance!

"I really, really, really, really, really, really LOVE you!" #ILoveSomeoneWithAutism

Kind Notes. #AutismAcceptance

As some of you know my son is almost 14 years old, has autism. and goes to a regular school. He’s always been very accepted by his peers and they include him in as much as he can handle even though he isn’t very verbal (more echoic, like a parrot). Today Bryce came home with this ‘Kind Notes’ from his peers in his class and I really wanted to share it with you all as I think ‘Kind Notes’ is a beautiful idea!

Kind Notes from Bryce's classmates

This meant so much to me, more than these kids will ever understand!! Just having a proud and emotional mommy moment and wanted to share.

“You’re doing a great job!”

I was sitting on a bench watching Bryce play on the playground when a woman approached me and said, “You’re doing a great job!”

She mentioned she had a child with special needs too and also was approached by a woman who told her she was doing a great job as well, and wanted to ‘pay it forward’ as most of us parents to special needs kids could always use that little reassurance every now and then.

It honestly made my day.

I thought it was really nice of her to come up to me to tell me that. It was like a belated Mothers Day gift. It honestly made me feel like I’m doing something right at least for a complete stranger to take notice.

So to all you moms or dads out there, caring for a child with special needs, I just wanted to let you know, you’re doing a great job!
