No moment is too small or insignificant to celebrate!

I think I’m turning the corner on the grieving process which is funny because for the longest time I didn’t even know I was actually grieving. Turns out that’s what I’ve been doing for a really long time. I focused so much on what Little Miss M couldn’t do, on her shortcomings, on her struggles that I couldn’t actually see all the beautiful things my precious girl could do. This moment was truly special in that it was completely ordinary and completely appropriate and I just about turned cartwheels when it happened.

Available again! National Autism Association has brought back the Autism Safety Boxes

Children with autism wandering off is not something new. The National Autism Association periodically offers grants for their Big Red Safety Box, which includes informative brochures, door/window alarms, shoe ID tag, and more. The retail value of these resources is $53, but they are available for a donation of $8 to cover shipping costs. The Big Red Safety Boxes have become available again, but quantities are limited to qualified applicants.
