April 2nd ~ Autism Awareness Day

(My status on FB).

It is officially Autism Awareness Day. Please take a moment to think about the people you love who are affected by Autism. And if you are lucky enough to not have Autism affect your life, be grateful, look at your children and love them, and realize that no matter how bad you think you have it or how terrible of a time your kids give you....

...., you and your kids have it easier than someone else. And no matter how crippling you think your child's condition may be, there is someone out there who is worse off than you. Many kids with Autism are non-verbal and cannot do things like dress and go to the bathroom by themselves. They live in fear of their own environment. What would your life be like if your child had Autism?
