The first United Nations World Autism Awareness Day! Autism Speaks talks about this unprecedented day. CNN has lots of information on their web site. Join the virtual Walk Now for Autism. As many of you know, my four year old son Lowell was diagnosed with Autism at the age of two. He has had lots early intervention and has come a long way. The people that have come into our lives during his treatment have forever changed us in such positive ways. We still have daily reminders of how different Lowell is, but he has certainly changed us and helped us grow in more ways than we could ever name. He has made me a much stronger mother than I ever thought possible. He has tested my limits and shifted my perspective on this journey called life. I try to always remember that he is who he is and we couldn't love him more!!!!
