I can’t think of a better way to start this year’s Autism Awareness Month than to remember how far we have come on our journey with autism. I’ve spent a lot of time in the last week re-reading past blog posts and looking at old pictures in anticipation of this month. Autism Awareness Month means different things to different families, and for us it’s a time of reflecting on and looking forward to our work of educating and advocating for autistic individuals and their families.
Corbyn Tyson created The Fatherhood Project series a few years ago and highlighted our family in one of the episodes. To watch it now, and to know the change that has taken place in Liam’s life in only two years, is overwhelming. We are so grateful for this short film to serve as a reminder of things past, but more importantly, as a reminder of the possibilities of the future.
Here’s to the past and the future possibilities!
