During the month of April in honor of Autism Awareness/Acceptance Month I am going to post a picture showing our autism. Autism is a spectrum. When you know one child with autism you know one child with autism. This is our autism.
Our village…People ask me all the time how I do it. Quite simple…I have an amazing village of people cheering my family on. As the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child. Our village consists of family, friends, caregivers, therapists, and teachers. It also includes people I have never met but have gotten to know via social media. These people have been by my family’s side either in person or through their messages, thoughts and prayers since day 1 of our journey. These people have helped Courtney through all the ups and downs. They have helped me through all the ups and downs. There are times where I feel isolated as an autism mom, but I am definitely not alone. I know there are many autism moms can not say the same thing. It takes a village and I thank you for being part of that village! This is our autism!
