2009 Georgia Walk For Autism

Believe it or not, another year has gone by. Our sweet Noah is now 8 years old and finishing second grade. Once again we will be raising money for the Georgia Walk for Autism and we need your help. The Georgia Walk for Autism is the only one in the country that raises money for both autism research and treatment. Donations will go to both Autism Speaks and The Marcus Institute. As it was with our sweet Noah early diagnosis and treatments are one the main keys to helping kids with autism.
I should clarify that we aren't going to be able to walk this year because the walk is on a Sunday morning, but we are still having a team in the walk, and most importantly we are raising money for this important cause. So I guess this year we are a virtual walk team. Every dollar can help. Together we can help find the missing pieces.

2008 Georgia Walk for Autism

What an amazing year it has been, Noah just continues to amaze us with his abilities. Academically Noah is thriving and growing, but he is also making leaps and bounds socially.

Once again we will be participating in the Georgia Walk for Autism. The Georgia walk is unique in that it is the only walk in the world to support both autism research (Autism Speaks) and treatment (The Marcus Institute). We hope many of you will join us on our walk this year. The more the better. If you would like to join our walk team just click on the team page link on the right. If you would like to make a donation to our team just click on the link of any team member or the main team page. Please contact me if you have any questions.

The Joy of Autism

A great blog that everyone should check out is The Joy of Autism. As a parent of a seven year old with autism, I wanted to find a blog on the topic of autism. There are a wealth of blogs on the topic of autism, but this one quickly jumped out at me. So many people don't see the joy in raising an autistic child. We get so caught up in planning, and therapies, and IEPs that we sometimes forget to take joy in how special autistic children are.

Joy is not what Adam will become. My joy comes from living with him, from
possibilities that I don’t invest in too heavily. Joy comes from being with
Adam, and what he reveals to me every day.

The author,Estee Klar-Wolfond, of this blog offers a view of autism that often we forget to see. My son Noah is a unique and special little person that I wouldn't change for the world.
