Having an autistic child is not the end of the world--far from it. It is my hope that through this blog, at least a handful of people will get to understand that. My child is amazing, she brings us tremendous joy. We have good days & bad days, but we CHOOSE to focus on the good. Our belief is that by loving our daughter, giving her the most comfortable environment we can, and by most of all accepting her differences, she will continue to blossom--in her OWN way.

Update on CAICA

PhotobucketBig sigh of relief...

I have heard from CAICA (Coalition Against Institutionalized Child Abuse), and I can assure you that they did not approve of the writings from the "Hating Autism" blog. They were removed immediately, once it was brought to their attention. I was so glad to hear this, as that type of writing did seem very opposite to what they fight for. I am very relieved that the hateful writings were not intentionally added there, and how quickly they acted on this. BRAVO to CAICA!!

Also, should you ever see anything like this on CAICA in the future, please feel free to email them at info@caica.org so they can investigate them. If you are unsure what CAICA is about, please visit their website.
