- The mamas who gave up their careers when the diagnosis hit.
- The mamas who had to work harder at their careers to provide for their child(ren) with autism.
- The mamas who would never speak up and now roar like lions when someone messes with their child.
- The siblings who get so much less of our time and attention because of autism.
- The naysayers who tell us all the things our kid will never do and yet our kids prove them wrong.
- The ones who believe our kids can do most things if given the opportunity and tools.
- My friends in the rabbit hole. (Stop hogging the tequila.)
- For the Daddy that dyed his hair blue.
- For those who are mad at God.
- For those whose faith in God carries them through the tough times.
- For those who send their solider off to war and fight the battle at home alone.
- For those who have paved the way in getting laws passed to provide for our kids. (Thank you Judith!)
I do know that I am never alone and I also know that autism is no longer an invisible disability.
To all my family and friends and friends I consider family, thank you for your support and for believing in me and my son. I love each and everyone of you. See you at the finish line.
