This is something that is close to my heart as one of my children is on the Autistic Spectrum. Penny has created a great post with a poem and a link as well. Go take a look.

The Why About This

being wanted

There is beauty in the heart and soulof every single child born on our planet today.

And one in ever 68 of them (in the USA) is born with Autism, which discounts their personal beauty not a bit. For the families who struggle with the varying issues that accompany this condition, my heart goes out to you. We deal with Autism in our family here, so I know of what I speak.

Please visit the following site I’ve linked to and read the article. It is extremely well written and informative. Mostly it’s emotionally moving as it reminds us of all the reasons we care and love one another and most especially – our children.

“68 Things to Know About Children with Autism” – 

Thank you,

Enjoy what you are given – in the moment,

From one heartbeat to the next it can be gone.

  1. Al, as you know, like you, my son James falls on the autistic spectrum; as far as I’m concerned, it’s not a disability. It’s not an illness to be cured. I love him just the way he is. He sees the world a little differently from the rest of us but through learning about his world I learn more about mine.

    I’ll be walking for Autism Awareness at the Rose Bowl, Los Angeles on April 26th and have just started raising money. I won’t post a link without your permission but the more we can raise, the better others can understand their world too 🙂
