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.

Nick's First Trip to Overnight Camp!! Pictures & Tears....
This is one happy Kid!!!
Nick's first time at overnight camp! Actually it was the first time in 17 years he had been away from home overnight without us, except to be in the hospital. The reason's why, we all know :(. When he was gone NO ONE CALLED me it was crazy, he really was without me!!! That brought up an odd combo of "No news is good news", Joy, and discomfort because I was disconnected. DISCONNECTED for the first time ever. He was okay with out me.And boy was it worth it! Now I'm crying as I look at my happy guy, who did this! Thanks to Annabeth, Luis and my church family for making this happen. We love you!
