Lost and Tired + CNN = #Autism Awareness

I have been working on something and have been pretty hush hush about it. However, I think I can let the cat out of the bag, so to speak. 🙂

I’m soooooo excited to share with you all that I have written my 1st article for CNN. I’m told the article will go live sometime tomorrow. This article is for #Autism Awareness month and I really hope it helps to educate those that aren’t as familiar with #Autism and help them to have a better understanding of what lies beneath the surface. It’s so important for the future of not only my kids but all children and adults with #Autism, that the world see them for who they really are. They are all amazing people in their own unique way and deserve our respect, compassion and understanding.

Hopefully my words will help to foster this. If even one single person learns something from my experience, I think that’s a step in the right direction 🙂

I’ll pass along the link when the article goes live. It’s supposed to be published on Monday, April 9th. When it does go live, please take a few minutes and check it out. I would love to hear your feedback.

Thank you all for being so amazingly supportive 🙂

Update:The article has not gone live yet. As soon as it does, I’ll pass along the link and I would love to get some feedback on the CNN site. 🙂

Thanks

I have a friend whose son is autistic and he read the article and reposted on Facebook. I hadn't visited your blog in awhile so I didn't know it was coming. So surprised and happy to see the article from you. Way to go!

Congratulations! -Well deserved. I've been reading all of your posts and love what you are doing for the community. I have a son with Asperger's and can relate. You should write about trying to get services in schools. Some places and people are better than others, but even under the best of circumstances it's frustrating and scary. Also, CNN would be a great venue for poll taking in the autism community and contests such as: who has had the longest IEP meeting or the most people present at a meeting:)
