I originally started this blog a few years ago to chronicle Noah's daily struggles with autism. It was a dark time in my life - a time when I felt that things would never get better. It was a time when I felt that all my hopes and dreams for my son and for our family had died. In my efforts to help Noah recover from autism, I began a journey that inadvertently led me to rediscover myself. I learned how to laugh again. How to dream again. How to live again. How to love again.

Autism Schmaustism. He's still our son.

This is a blog celebrating our family. Our kids. Our life.

You're Invited to a Virtual Baby Shower!

My friend Amy - you know, Amy who takes the awesome pictures and who has 7 kids and has an amazing blog and is just an amazing person - you know, THAT Amy - well, she's expecting again.

This time it's FIVE.

Yep, you heard me. Five.

As in 7 + 5 = 12.

Isn't that awesome?!

Angel at The Voice of Adventure has done an amazing blog post today about Amy and her new family and has put up a paypal button for donations. Seriously, you've got to check out her post because it's really wonderful.

I tell you, that is one GORGEOUS family.

And well-behaved,too. Please share your secret, Amy. I have at least two kids who could benefit. :-)

So do yourself a favor and head on over to Angel's blog . It'll put a smile on your face.
