14 years ago Michelle & I were very unfamiliar with what Autism was. Today we know Autism as simply a word, because you can not describe someone with a diagnosis. Our family was extremely lucky to have some extremely informed and compassionate women who helped guide us in a process that is still ongoing today. Most families in our situation are not as lucky, so organizations like Autism Speaks are essential in guiding the uninformed.
This year Sunday October 2nd our family will be walking to raise money for Autism Speaks!
