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.

I am extremely proud to announce that our oldest daughter, Caitlin, has officially graduated from High School....
Yep, this young woman, with a 3.6 GPA has graduated.

Am I a proud mama...???


This young lady has worked her butt off...she kept her cool in classes...she did her homework
( yes..by herself)...she earned her grades.

I sat amongst several thousand parent's, relatives and friends in a very large arena and thought to myself...
"will Caitlin freak out....???"
"will she be able to hold it together???"
"will she be able to cross the stage, shake several hands, get her picture taken, and then
walk off without a hitch???"


So, I proudly announce the graduating Senior...CAITLIN CAROLE O'DONNELL...Anderson High School Class of 2010.!!
