Sharing and Connecting in order to heal

Hello Everyone! 

It has been quite a while (over two years!) since I last posted and, as you can imagine, the roller-coaster ride that is autism has been very challenging these last couple of years.  But we have been in a good place for a couple of months now and I really want to connect and share some observations once again. 

Before I do that, however, I need to give a shout out to a woman, Karen Elmquist, who, back in October 2015, read one of my many desperate facebook posts about my son’s seizures and reached out to me with advice.  She understood what we were going through because of her own son’s experience.  This short message from her has helped turn Dante’s seizures around and, because of this new-found peace, I am able to post again:


One little post from a stranger, one huge impact to our family.  It is because of the power of sharing that I want to write again about our experiences.  It is so important to stay connected.  Thank you for reading!

Next Up:  Let’s talk about horrible pain for some with autism.
