Dacia,
What a fantastic blog you have. I love all the pictures of your family, and how wonderful that you are working so hard on Autism awareness! It is an important issue that effects many families!

I will definitely be back. Thanks for coming by to visit me over at Midwest Moms, too. :)

Have a great day! - Julia

Thanks for that info. I will see you at the movies, and I am absolutely going to the high school to the inflatable slide. See you there!

So why autism? Does one of the kids have it? Not that the cause isn't worthy, just wondered.

That’s great Dacia! I proud of you for getting involved ; )
We actually thought Jenaya had a form of Autism but she has been diagnosed with two other disorders. My heart goes out for all the children (and parents) struggling with some much in their lives.
