About Me

I am the proud mother of 6 children. 5 of our children have autism. We do not feel our world has ended, but just begun. We do not chelate, intervene biochemically, give shots of any kind, practice ABA, etc. We treat them as we treat any humanbeing. We treat them with kindness and respect and expect the same from them. They are exceptional children.

THANKSGIVING 2007...


Wow, what a difference a year makes.
Last year, at this time, we lived in a 2200 square foot home, full of mold and a cracked foundation.
This year, we have been blessed with a 4600 square foot home.....much more space.
We do not take anything that has been given to us for granted. I pray every day and thank the Lord for our blessings.
But, mostly, I thank the Lord for the blessings that are in the picture.
I thank God for Caitlin, Deirdre, Erin, Meaghan, Patrick, Kiernan and little Patrick.
Today, our home will be filled with family and friends. The people who love us with all of our quirks and special gifts. They do not enter our home and find a big old "pity party". They find children playing and laughing.
Isn't that alot to be Thankful for???
Today is a day with turkey, dressing, potatoes, rolls, gravy, cranberry sauce, pies, cakes, green beans, salads, etc....all gluten-filled and homemade with LOVE.
The Austin American Statesman has printed a story about us today...if you want...you can read it here http://www.statesman.com/news/content/news/stories/local/11/22/1122autism.html.
Wishing all of you a very safe and HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
