Laugh with us, cry with us, and learn about AUTISM!

Monday, 24 June 2013


There are days where every fibre of my being hurts.  My body aches, my mind spirals downward into an unstoppable depression.  The feelings of helplessness and hopelessness are harsh realities at these times.  I experience a complete drain of my superwoman abilities.

The Hardest Thing About Being an Autism Mom

Life with autism isn't always peachy; if you read my blog regularly you're already aware of that.  There are good times and bad times, laughter and crying.  (Mostly laughter in this family!)  There is one thing that tends to get me down in the dumps - what I consider to be the hardest thing about being an autism mom.

Autism is a lifelong disability that affects how your child communicates with other people and sees the world around them. The condition manifests itself in different ways in different children; some will be able to live a normal life, while others may need specialist support for life.
Despite being called a ‘hidden disability’, there are over 700,000 people in the UK with autism  meaning the condition touches the lives of 2.5 million people every day. If you’re a parent of an autistic child, you’ll want to provide the best possible care for your child.

Motorcycle Ride for Autism, Ottawa

I would like to take a moment to shamelessly plug my father-in-law, Dave Kuhnle, and his new cause The Motorcycle Ride for Autism, Ottawa.

Dave is the most generous, caring and involved Grandpa that he could possibly be.  Somehow, despite owning and operating his own business, he is always available to babysit his granddaughters,  play with the kids, and now, has made the time to start a ride to support autism.

Autism awareness has become a cause near and dear to our entire families hearts.  I'm so proud of Dave for taking this awareness a step further, and founding The Motorcycle Ride for Autism, Ottawa.  There is a lot of work involved to found a cause like this, but he is taking it in stride.

If you have the time, money or resources to volunteer, donate or ride, please do.  You can get more information by visiting our website, Facebook page, Twitter account, Google + account, or blog.  (Another shameless plug, all the social media and the blog is run by me!)  Of course, you can also contact me directly.

We are nearly set up for registration and donations, give us a little more time!  

Thank you readers for taking the time to consider our cause!  Thank you once again to my father-in-law and mother-in-law!  Dave and Noella, we appreciate all you have done and all that you do!
