There is an amazing autistic blogger known as E from The Third Glance, if you have not read her wonderful writing, I promise you won’t regret taking the time to do so. Not only do I love her blog but she is generous and thoughtful with her insights in commenting on mine and other blogs. It’s made a difference in my understanding my own son better and I am so grateful to her for that.
Yesterday she alerted a few of us that parents.com is calling for parent stories for autism awareness month in April and then she said the following:
“So here’s where you come in. If you think that this is a neat idea, and want to spread it around to parents you know in the blog-o-sphere (and outside, of course), and encourage a slew of positive stories, please share, disseminate, and encourage it.
Wouldn’t it be nice, if, for once, April was less about the “tragedy of autism” and more about the people themselves? Parents get all the spotlight during the month, so let’s hear some parents’ voices that are kind and hopeful and loving….”
I couldn’t agree more. I will be submitting my post, I hope you will too!
You don’t need to be a blogger, you just have to have a story to share:
And finally, it wouldn’t be Friday without Sunday Stilwell and Ryan Gosling these days.
