Happy Novembrrrrrrr! The temperature has really dropped here in Tennessee. Time to bundle up with a warm beverage, fuzzy slippers, and start marking holi-dates on the calendar. Here's the latest:
According to the Center for Disease Control, Autism affects 1 in 88 individuals. Do you know and love someone on the autism spectrum?
In other news - I had the pleasure of hearing a young man on the autism spectrum named Logan Blade sing at a benefit recently. He's pretty amazing and reminded me once again to Always Assume Ability. He's got some exciting news coming up. I'll tell you more next month. Visit this youtube link to hear him singing Long Black Train.
When our daughter Morgan was first diagnosed with autism, we were devastated as we wondered what the future would hold. We went along picking up "Pieces of Hope" wherever we could find them. We had no idea at that time what a gift and a blessing Morgan would be in our lives. She's taught us more along the way than we'll ever be able to teach her. It's been hard at times, but we wouldn't trade our family's walk with autism for anything. We're more thankful for the things that really matter. And because of that, we're able to give out "Pieces of Hope" to other families. Morgan turns 19 this month. Happy Birthday sweet girl.
