The Sisterhood is a place to bring your cup of coffee to. Heck, bring the whole pot :). Sit down, relax, and fall in for a while. No divas or meanies allowed. It's about boy brain, kiddos, food, one crazy labrador, autism and a cat in recovery from a back tire incident. Oh the places you'll go :)

Autism: The Truth Rarely Mentioned

Autism Sparkles

Blog 52

Road weary from the ride to Disney and hungrier than I can ever remember being as an adult, our party of six quickly descended upon the closest restaurant we could find near our hotel.  We were fresh off the road, a nearly three hour drive mixed in with the joy of Los Angeles traffic, when we finally sat down at the corner table. I had not been sitting for long when I noticed all twelve of them sitting at the table beside us.  They were noisy, as any large group would be, but it was more than their noise that caught my attention.

The Table of Twelve was familiar to me and, at one time in my life, they had been my people.

Why I love autism ❤

Autism Sparkles

blog-4

The truth is I really do love autism.  I do.  I love autism because it has changed me and made me one hundred times the person I was before my boy was gifted to my life. I accept and love autism because I accept that my boy is who he is meant to be, he is made exactly as he was meant to be made and the journey we are both on is about helping to strengthen his weaknesses and sharing his radiance.  I don’t believe he is a mistake or that he needs to be cured. I don’t believe in lost puzzle pieces. I don’t believe there is any part of my boy that needs fixing.

You may not agree with me and that’s okay because, honestly, this is not the first time I have cut against the collective autism grain.  Not the first time he and I have…
