A day in the life of a single mom raising a teenager and a child with autism. I believe that it's not what we receive, but what we give away that defines us. I want to give away all that I have learned and experienced in hopes that it will help families raising a child with autism or any disability. This is my candid journal where I open up my world and share my joys, knowledge, lessons, disappointments, challenges, frustrations, fears and successes - one day at a time.

Love, Therapist and No Surprises
Today Nicky's therapist called me nearly in tears. My heart stopped as I waited to hear what he was going to say. He quietly began "Today when I got Nick off the bus he looked at me and said "I Love You Julius". He went on to say he's such a special kid and he had never heard Nicky say that and he thought he was going to cry.
An incredible moment between any two people, but between a child with ASD and his therapist a phenomenal moment.
