So much of what I want to say about Little Star is attitudinal.
Everything lately – when I talk to our volunteers, when we discuss challenging behaviours, when we talk about the progress she has made and even the ones she has yet to make, when coming up with games for the playroom, being with her, and managing expectations of autistic kids (less is more, none even better)… Seems to boil down or lead back to attitude. 749 more words
There is something I want to get off my chest. It’s swelling and threatening to overflow ❤️ I LOVE MY CHILD’S ISMS!!!

I can’t believe we are already on the last day at New Frontiers. Yes, we made it to the autism training in Singapore! All thanks to supportive family and friends, and a massive host of people we don’t know personally but either loved Little Star’s story, OR supported the Perez’s family’s fundraising effort. 315 more words
