Let’s see….where do I start? Life’s been a real rollercoaster for the last 5 months. Some days were good, some bad, some productive, some not so productive and many were spent trying to figure out what my next move was going to be.
One big highlight is that Christian and I moved 3 months ago. Our new place has a couple of hundred more square feet of which some will be transformed into Autism But Life Goes On office space. I’m looking to get A.B.L.G.O products made; things like mouse pads, pens and stress balls. I’m also looking into attending fairs and meetings to meet and support families touched by autism.
One thing is for sure….I am soooo glad to be back!
The feelings of both excitement and nervousness flow through me as I share with you that Autism But Life Goes On is officially Autism But Life Goes On Inc. For the past couple of years I’ve shared with individuals my experiences as the mother of an autistic child. Time and time again I’ve noticed that kind deeds and a few words of encouragement go a long way; hence why I started this blog. The experience has been amazing. In the past few weeks I’ve been blessed to be used to touch the lives of several hundred people in the United States as well as people in the United Kingdom, Australia,Canada, Brazil, Switzerland, Myanmar, Netherlands, Ireland, Kenya, Italy and the Cayman Islands.
Now that Autism But Life Goes On is a registered business my plans are to really reach out to the members of the Autism community through various activities. I can’t speak for people in other states, but there aren’t a lot of support and social services for people touched by autism in Illinois. I’d like to change that. I’ll be working on some things and will be posting updates about progress as I move along. As for now….hooray for a new service provider for our community!
