As I mentioned in my Mother's Day post, my best friend Christine has a sweet little munchkin named Skylynn who has autism. From the moment Christine and her husband Nate even suspected Skylynn might have autism, they rolled up their sleeves and went to work. They've always made sure that their daughter has all the resources and help she needs and they are incredibly hands-on in working with Skylynn to develop her communication skills as much as possible. They have also really worked to educate those around them on what autism is and what it isn't; they don't want people making assumptions about Skylynn's intelligence or about their parenting methods in communicating and disciplining their daughter.
I try to support Christine as much as I can as she goes through this journey, so I'm very happy to post about a walk we're participating in this fall with Autism Speaks.
Here is an excerpt from Christine's blog:
