My Girl Turns 18, The Best Surprise Party EVER!!!

YOU SAID IT COULDN'T BE DONE!!  Gotcha!!!!!!!!!!
One of the best days EVER is how I rank Evyn's surprise birthday and graduation party!. What I wanted to do more than anything was to give Evyn a day that was ALL about Evyn. A day where she was the center of the universe, a day she would remember for a lifetime. A day where she didn’t have to share a second of the sunshine with her brother, a day where life was just about happiness, her happiness.  A day were everyone showed up JUST for her, a day to share with all the amazing people who make up the village that's brought us safely and successfully to this happy day. And maybe most of all a day where autism was not in the lead role….but just hanging way back like the understudy. We did it! Thanks to everyone :) 


  1. Hi Donna,

    I was one of the parents on the behavior training panel in June. Congrats on your daughter's graduation! Hope the start to your summer is a good one.

  2. Hello Ms Donna Ross-Jones,
    I googled a search on teeth grinding for my autisic 6 year old daughter and fate lead me to your blogg. It's now 3am and I have found 4 hours of no sleep but enlightened by your journey. It's so diificult to form connections with mom's who are not living with autism. After all the posts I have read thus far i wanted to intoduce myself on this one about your Evyn. Congratulations to you and her. I am happy you made a day and an experience all about her. I try to do the same for my other two non autisic kids, but as you have stated it is not easy. Do you have a Post office box or some secure and safe mailing alternative for public contributions. I would like to send a gift for your daughter. I am hopeful that she will be attending college. Please write back. You are an inspiration and this blog has touch me in a way that I can not express. Thank you for your kindness and strengh.
