Countdown to the Walk!
I'm SO excited - tomorrow is the Autism Speaks walk! Our team has raised $865 and I'm hoping we can hit our goal of $1000 over the weekend. I'm getting a little nervous, not about the crowds or the expected chaos of the event, but about the emotions I will feel surrounded by so many other families and children struggling with this disorder. Autism can make you feel so alone at times, like no one could ever understand it, but I'm actually really looking forward to going to an event where kids like JD are the "norm" - where I don't have to worry about the stares, or whether he's going to have a meltdown. I'm so proud of my little boy and the walk is just one little way to show it! Go TEAM JD!!!
