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.

PICTURE PERFECT....



Amy sent all of us some lovely cards from her new home. She wrote a special message to all of us. I asked Caitlin "What did Amy write to you"?


Caitlin said," Amy told me to keep doing my art"...


I said, "Are you going to keep doing your art"?


Caitlin replied," I already am doing my art" !!!


I said,"When"?


Caitlin said, "Yesterday"....


I said,"What did you draw"?


Caitlin replied, "Shapes".....





Okay, "Can I see the shapes"?

Above is the masterpiece she brought me....It took her one day....

PICTURE PERFECT....

How awesome! What did she do it with? Crayons? Paint? Colored pencils, markers, pastels?

Yes, that is my aunt and I would be her sister's little girl! My mom, Dodie and I lived in shared duplexes with her until we moved to Lubbock, but Johnette is still in San Marcos, her last name is now Niemietz. I will have to tell her you found me on here! ~Elizabeth

Oh haha some things never change, my mom and her cannot get together without wetting their pants! It's made for some great stories & extra loads of laundry over the years! I haven't had a chance to talk to her, she just had a big birthday bash for her 50th this weekend, but I will. I looked up your story, and I'm just so amazed, you are truly an earth angel. Your children are so blessed to have been given to you!
