World Autism Awareness Day

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. 

I find it ironic that World Autism Day follows what I refer to as "Autism Hazing Day" (aka April Fools). I'll share that story tomorrow--so stay tuned. I will attempt to share a little something almost every day this month about life with autism. The world needs to hear the message and find acceptance. 1 in 88 (and dropping) means that very, very soon, every family will have at least one person with Autism in their family. 

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.
