To My Family

You work so hard every day and don't care what the world thinks. You fight for everything and try to get people to understand you and accept you for who you are. You love each other in a way that most siblings don't. You have taught me so much in this life - much more than I could EVER teach you. You accept the world for what it is, not recognizing color, religion or disability. You take everyone at face value and accept them for who and what they are.

Autism is a family member that we have accepted and have made a part of our lives. Today I pray that others will learn and accept what we have spent the last 10 years working and doing.

Kiana, Malachi and Chris, I love you for what you are. Thank you for showing me a different view of life!

World Autism Day
