World Autism Awareness Day

April is Autism Awareness month...

If you click on the letters (it is in three pages/parts) it will zoom in so you can read them !

so I will be sharing (in between crafty goodness) a bit of information I find important to share with the (IM assuming?) non autism community readers of my blog.

This is a very precious letter that was given to me by an anonymous scrapbook mom who knew of Ryan and our daily struggles. She simply said that she thought of me today (it was Mothers day) and how my mothers day has a whole different meaning than hers would have because of this article and wanted to share it with me.

I was so touched by it and it gives me such peace and comfort at times when things become unbearable .. . IM so sorry the type is small on it.. .I couldn't get it any larger without crashing blogger and its too long to retype! rofl
Its important to me and part of my job so I wanted to share with you all!
