Such a similar story

Posted by theothersideofnormal on March 24, 2010 in autism, family |

I found this on a great website (saferchemicals.org) that I’m linked to on Facebook.  This is almost identical to our story, so I thought I’d share this here.  It’s happening everywhere… still today… and to us, it happened 15 years ago.  I don’t know Ellie and her son, but we’re still connected in so many ways.    […]

Siblings and autism

Posted by theothersideofnormal on March 11, 2010 in autism, family |

Meet the family

My incredibly supportive family…  I would not be ‘sane’ without them!  Here we are after the Steps of Hope Autism Walk in February.  We raised a good sum of money for the cause.  Thanks everyone!  Love you all! Tony is 3rd on the right (going down the stairs).    Becki
