World Autism Day 2012

Today I'd like to give a shout out to all my readers all over the world who are raising a child with autism. If raising a child is difficult, raising a child with autism is at least four times as hard. However, it's definitely a worthwhile endeavor. I've become a better person as a result of being a parent of a thirteen-year-old boy on the autism spectrum. People who have autism view and react to the world differently than those who don't, thus giving us a whole new perspective. Anyway, my heart goes out to you all, and not just for today because we deal with challenges every single day of the year.

I can honestly say that my life is much more meaningful now that I have a child with autism. I agree that you get the opporunity to see life in a unique but beautiful way!

Thank you for the words of encouragement. Raising a kid with autism isn't easy but all the hard work you put into it is well worth it.
