Everyone needs a purpose

Posted by theothersideofnormal on March 29, 2016 in autism, coping skills, family |

  Welcome to all our new followers and friends!

I’ll admit it – […]

Taya Over the Rainbow

Posted by theothersideofnormal on November 14, 2014 in autism |

  A mother in my online autism support group posted this yesterday.  It brought me to tears.  One of the sweetest videos I’ve seen.
