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.

GOD'S EARS....

“GODS EARS”
DEBUTS AT THE METHOD FILM FESTIVAL IN LOS ANGELES
ON SUNDAY, MARCH 30TH at 5:30 pm

I was recently caught of guard by a “little” movie that this
guy named Michael Worth wrote, directed and starred in called
“GOD’S EARS”. There wasn’t a huge crowd at the screening
But, it was a respectable amount of people. I personally was
blow away by the film and apparently I wasn’t the only one.
Also, several people who were there that night came up to Michael Worth afterwards to ask him who the actor was that played the lead! He was so convincing playing the part of an autistic person, they didn’t even recognize him!
Having grown up in “HOLLYWOOD” \and having gone through USC film school, I have seen a few films
in my day. Little did I know that this film would end up altering
my sensibilities, my pre-conceived notions and my heart for …
good.
This insightful moving piece of art is the delicate story about a
young boxer struggling with autism and his first real relationship
with an “unlikely” partner. It creatively draws attention to the
natural hunger that all of us crave, which is to bond with each
other regardless of our human “condition” or constraints.
Aesthetically stunning to watch, “GOD’S EARS” is deeply
poignant on many levels. It not only conjured up a brand new
feeling of heartfelt compassion in me but, it infused tolerance
and manifested a fresh perspective about acceptance of others.
As far as autism is concerned, who better to act out the
plight of autism awareness than a fighter? I can’t think of a
better way than using media to interject understanding about
human suffering into mainstream consciousness.
THIS FILM IS A MUST SEE AND ALL I CAN ABOUT THIS GUY IS…

Hi Amy,
The movie premieres at the Method Film Festival in Calabasas, Ca on March 30th.
If the film does good there and has a full house, I believe it has a good chance to go onto theatres...That is what I believe I was told.
I am just trying to get the word out to get the house filled.
Hope your Easter weekend is a good one.
Love,
Jeanette

Super.
I can't watch this movie. I started tearing up during the trailer!
I'll have to wait for the DVD....we don't see many movies out, but this one looks great. Thanks for the heads up!

Jeannette--I have to say that your blog is my favorite. I feel like people can be honest and share their experiences without fear of reprisal. After having visited some of the other blogs out there having to deal with autism or special needs that are so mean spirited or one-sided it's nice to be able to come to your blog and chat even when not everyone agrees. Keep it up.
