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.


Happy New Year! (Yes...I am still here...)

My apologies for having fallen off the map here.  I've had some personal issues going on, and finding the time and energy, let alone the thought process, to blog has been nearly impossible.  It is my hope to be back up and running (well, writing!) at some point down the road.  I am going to make a true attempt at reading my fellow blogger's pieces (as I've not done so lately and I miss reading all you have to say!).  

I want to wish everyone a Happy & Healthy New Year.  It is my hope that 2009 brings about great change for autistics, change that leads to acceptance and services and open minds.  

Take care,
