    As the year comes to an end, I just wanted to thank you Carrie. As the mom of two kids on the spectrum, many days it is your blog that reminds me that our family is not alone and there are others they understand our unique lives. Some days your blog is also the much needed laugh 🙂 Happy New Year and again- thank you for what you do.

    Thank you for sharing your journey! I feel like I’m not alone, that my worries are the same for all of us because we are all looking into a big black box wondering if there are any instructions. But alas there are not and we all just keep our heads above water, some days being better than others. I wish you peace and love and above all, a guilt free break because you are doing your best. We all are. Being on the spectrum is scary for us but for our boys, maybe its their normal, that its okay . If only they could find one good friend, well that would put us all over the moon wouldn’t it? 🙂 Happy New Year!

    Thank you for allowing me into your world this past year. It made me cry, it made me laugh as it touched me to the core. As a grandmother of a grandson on the spectrum, I have learned not to judge, have more patience, and most of all a new hope for all the parents and children doing their utmost best everyday. I do believe God will continue to give you all, the courage, and strength
    to continue your mission. May 2017 open up new ideas and ways to help.

    I love your writing. While you mention the challenges of raising a child with autism, so much of it is relative to anyone who has a child with special needs. I have a daughter who has been struggling with a major depressive disorder since middle school and she’s now a senior in high school, yet I can relate to everything you’ve written. Thank you. I don’t feel so alone reading your posts, where I so often feel alone at work or with friends. They say you’re only as happy as your least happy child. It’s so true. Again, thanks for putting into words what I often feel.
