This board was created to promote Autism awareness. Did you know that 1 in 88 children are born with autism? Out of that number 1 in 54 are boys. The statistic for girls is 1 in 252. Consider donating to Autism United or another great charity that helps fund research for this often misdiagnosed and very misunderstood disorder.

So, I had little red sparkly shoes whenever I was little. My little dorothy shoes that I wore until the sparkles fell off. I loved those shoes to pieces. While looking through the baby Toms on their website. I found these little gems!! Too cute!!!! So, this brought back a childhood memory :) Something to brighten the day during finals week!
I am wanting Valerie to have a pair of these Dorothy inspired TOMS. With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One.
This scarf reminds me of the Autism Awareness puzzle. It is available from www.theaccessoryb... for $15.99
Sometimes you have all the correct pieces, but they still don't want to fit together. Such is the life of a parent with an autistic child. I have friends who have autistic relatives. My heart goes out to the caregivers who sacrifice so much just to ensure that their loved one has as close to a normal life as possible. #AutismUnited
Help fill in the missing pieces of the puzzle. #AutismAwareness

Special Guest Assistance Card for Walt Disney World and Disneyland - If you're travelling to either of these destinations with a special needs child (autism, down syndrome etc..) make sure to ask for this card. This post advises everything you need to have before you leave home and what to ask for when you arrive. It's a lifesaver in the Disney Parks.
