autism awareness day

Did you know ...
  • Autism now affects 1 in 68 children and 1 in 42 boys
  • Autism prevalence figures are growing
  • Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.
  • Autism costs a family $60,000 a year on average
  • Boys are nearly five times more likely than girls to have autism
  • There is no medical detection or cure for autism
I have a very special little boy who gives me a reason to fight for Autism awareness! To watch my baby overcome so many obstacles in his 5 short years of life not only inspires me to be a better mom, but to be a better person. To look back on when we began this journey to where we are today brings more HOPE to my heart than ever before. I don't know why we were chosen to be on this path, but I praise Jesus for the comfort and power He has given me as a mother to help my baby fight back! I also thank Jesus for all of the doctors, specialist, and teachers who have fought along side us to provide Avery with the best care. Today, World Autism Awareness Day, I have HOPE that we find a cure, just as I will always have HOPE in my precious Avery!
