Joys of autism expressed by other parents

You know, I don't get to everything as quickly as I should, so I was quite surprised when I came across this today on About.com by Lisa Jo-Rudy: The Joy of Autism: A Mother's Day Gift. I hope it encourages everyone every day.

After reading it, read the post just beneath on happiness.

Have an enlightened day.

Hi there, and thanks for the link! I am hoping to continue adding to that collection of "appreciations" over time... got dozens just before Christmas, so I'll try again this year.

One of the nicest things about people's responses has been that they're not just from parents. There are notes from siblings, aunts and uncles, grandparents, and lovers.

Cheers,

Lisa

Hi,

I was wondering if you might have had pleurisy. I used to get it a lot in grad school, usually just after a minor cold or something.
