Hey, don't get me wrong.. I like posting those "look how perfect my life is!" overly filtered / photo shopped pics as much as the next person.
But posting only the "Perfect" side of our lives isn't helping anyone!
This is one of the reasons I started this autism blog.
Especially my family and other families raising a child with Autism.
Lets just be real!!!
It‘s called Autism Spectrum for a reason, everyone is different.
what you see is what you get! and it's not always pretty.
I'm almost 19 years in! If I can share a story that will help you not make the same mistakes i did, I've done my job!
