Autism

There are four members of our family diagnosed with autism.  Jason, the husband and father, was diagnosed as an adult, after we completed our family.  Our two sons, Dinomite and Bulldozer, were diagnosed at the ages of 4 and 3 respectively.  Our adopted daughter Sunshine was also diagnosed at the age of 3.

At times we've felt like we're barely keeping our heads above water.  Other times we've felt confident and successful, excited to share and inspire.  No matter what we share, we're always honest about the good, the bad, and the in between moments.

On this page, you will find:
  • Autism Support & Resources
  • Personal Stories
  • Real Life Travel Experiences & Resources
  • Special Needs Perspective Series written by Jason
We hope you will find our variety of posts enjoyable and helpful, no matter your circumstance and where you're at in your journey with a loved one who has autism.
