awareness

April is Autism Awareness month and April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day, and tonight and tomorrow night prominent buildings across North America and the world — including the Empire State Building in New York City and the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada — will turn their lights blue to raise awareness for autism.

Autism is something that hits close to home here. Last March, our oldest was diagnosed with Autism and our world quickly changed. We always knew how special and unique our little guy truly was, we just had know idea that he would be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. If you want to read more about our first discovery of Fisher's diagnosis you can read here from our personal blog.

It's crazy to think how many children our diagnosed with autism every year and yet many families struggle to find and get the help for these beautiful and unique children. I am a huge advocate to help make people more aware and to help more with answers and help.

So for today and even tomorrow, I say we all should help light it up blue and wear blue! Let's get more people aware!!
