Autism Awareness Month: CNN iReport from me:)


CNN challenged me (as a parent of a beautiful little girl with autism) to share what autism is "like".  I could write a book on what Bella's does, how she acts, or how it makes life different and often difficult for us but, I won't.  

Today, I simply wanted to say this... autism is beautiful. It is beautiful because Bella makes it this way.

Here's my 30 second iReport on CNN's of the many dealing with autism:

*My favorite part of this clip is that I'm in the bathroom.  Bella was running wild (so I didn't even try to get her on the clip) and the house was in disarray so, it was the only safe place;)
