Today is National Autism Awareness Day

Today is National Autism Awareness Day, but to some of us, this is every day. However, I always wear blue on this day in support of my daughter who has autism, along with a long list of other spectrum related disorders.

For the past few years, there has been a controversy going around on Autism Speaks. Whether you support them or not, I believe you should spread the awareness on autism itself. Become a voice for someone who has autism. Educate yourself and spread awareness.

Fact: 1 out of 59 kids are diagnosed with autism. There is NO cure. However, there should be acceptance and not ignorance.

Some of you may already know that April is Autism Awareness Month and that April 2nd is National Autism Day; Everyone is encouraged to light it up blue to help spread awareness of Autism. I’m sharing this information in honor of my daughter, who has Autism. It has been a difficult and trying four years, but I would not go back and change a thing. I am thankful God has blessed me with my daughter, as He knows that I am not afraid to use my voice, to speak out for those who can’t.
