Raising Arizona has been both my biggest challenge and joy in this life. But, in navigating through the worry and heartbreak of raising a special needs child, I have found my own true calling : helping other parents find and realize joy and passion in their own lives.
And, I have a mission to share the beauty and joy of each child with autism to the world. I visualize a world where my daughter and others like her can be understood, accepted, and honored for who they are.
April is Autism Awareness Month and today is World Autism Awareness DAY. Today, I count my blessings for my 10 year old daughter, Arizona Ray Lovell, and wish upon her a life of fulfillment, purpose and peace.
I would love to know what ways you will be celebrating people with autism this month; please share your stories!
