My heart’s beating a little faster because we’re celebrating our love for those on the autism spectrum. Every day, for the next 14 days, I’m going to feature one of our favorite authors, apps, and organizations as a countdown to a huge giveaway of their products. (Now I can feel your heart beating faster too!) Have fun learning about them …and don’t forget to enter the giveaway. (Entry form at the end of this post. Lots of ways to earn extra entries too.)
As a mother of three boys, one of which is on the autism spectrum, our daily life is a roller coaster ride. We don’t need to go looking for excitement as it tends to find us.
Autism is on the rise with 1 out of 88 children being diagnosed. The autism diagnosis is higher in boys and is estimated to be about 1 in 50. “Our Wild Card” was written to help people understand autism by telling of the journey our family has taken with our son Travis. I hope our story will help others in similar situations as well as to inform the general public about an issue that is not going away any time soon.
For most of my life I have had very rigid beliefs about how a child should behave and what type of people my children were going to be when they grow up. Autism has helped free me from that thinking. Whatever people my children choose to be is going to be alright. Thanks to autism I now know unconditional love.
