Today was World Autism Awareness day and it kicks off Autism Awareness Month. And this year...I let it go (or I thought I did). I didn't 'do' all the Autism events nor did I post about it. But I've been inspired by several other autism moms to take time to share this month about autism in my everyday life. I think we are all 'aware' of autism, but I'd like to see us rename the month Autism Acceptance Month. I'd like people to understand the ups and downs the joys and sorrows faced when you love someone with autism.
If you have questions you've wanted to ask but weren't sure if it would be ok, I encourage you to ask during Autism Acceptance month. I won't judge you and I'll do my best to answer them.
