Awareness

Tonight’s post is dedicated to my wonderful, amazing, beautiful son Zachary. I hope you will allow me to indulge, and for any first time visitors maybe this post will spark a kinship!!

The Autism Project 8th Annual Imagine Walk 

Zachary’s recent diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder wasn’t really a surprise to our family, but a shock none the less. We have decided to educate ourselves, our family, and our friends in the many facets Autism Spectrum Disorder has. It has become the mission of our family to remain positive and continue to nurture Zachary as we conquer this small bump in the road. We are so excited to participate in the Imagine Walk and invite anyone and everyone who is able to attend to walk with us!

    Families of autistic children seem to come together in one way or another. Just these past two month after my son’s diagnosis, I have found so much support. And we have to remember like you said, “it’s a bump in the road”. Definitely doesn’t make it easy, but who said life was easy? It’s these challenges that make us stronger. Love to you and your family, especially Zac Attack (that’s what we call our Zac too)!
