Here we are again; it’s that time of the year when I start raising money for the Autism Speaks walk.
Last month was the Kick off the for Autism Speaks Miami 2011. It was nice seeing familiar faces again, everyone knows one another by first names, its like we are one BIG understanding family. I’ve never seen anything like, it this community really gets involved.
Let me start off by saying that I was touched by the new faces that were at the Marriot hotel that evening. Fewer than before, which means things are really looking up, but it’s no way near being over yet, it’s a long ongoing process. It was tough seeing the new parents whose child was just diagnosed; the tears coming from them were overwhelming (I recognized that pain all too well. But back when my children were diagnosed the resource were limited.) Now, the support that has come about throughout the years lets us know that we are being heard; however we can’t do it without you.
it’s not too late we’ve only just begun in putting together our Team It’s Starts With Love for this year’s walk. But if you can’t make it, then here is the link to where you can donate to this special cause.
