A Promising New Autism Blog is Launched

As many moms and dads in the autism blogging community already know, Ms. Casdok from Mother of Shrek just launched a new blog in honor of her handsome son's twentieth birthday (Sept. 24). What can I say? Word gets out fast.

The blog is named Faces of Autism. Each post features a photo of a different person and a link if applicable. So far, both genders, a variety of ages, and at least three different continents are represented.

If you or your loved one has autism, please consider contributing by emailing a photo and a link to Casdok at If you are concerned about privacy issues, please note that many of those profiled (minors in particular) used just their first names, initials or a made up name. One does not have to have a blog or website to participate.

Yep, my guy is already featured in case you are wondering. Us moms always seem to have a photo or two to share. The title the post for my guy is Vowles Viking, which is a nod to the elementary school he attends.
