Eddie was diagnosed with ASD in September of 2018. The strides he has made since then are incredible! For him the sky is the limit and there is not a single thing standing in his way!
That does not, however, take away from the fact that sometimes resources are still needed to navigate this ever changing world of Autism. This is why I'm so thankful for Autism Speaks and why this is such an important cause to my family and I. Programs created through Autism Speaks have opened a world of opportunity for not only my son but others just like him. This organization has served as a resource to continue to educate myself to best help Eddie.
Eddie's All-Stars was created 5 years ago to show my son that he's got an entire community of family and friends that will support and cheer him on every step of the way, for the good times and the not so good times as well.
To know Eddie is to love him. He is the most amazing little boy. Funny, smart, handsome, athletic, a great friend and an even better son. I am so lucky that he is mine. He is a light in the world and I will light it up blue for him always while continuing to challenge myself to see the world from Eddie's point of view.
