Abby will be 4 this summer, but this photo was taken when she was 9 months old. It was about that time that I first logged on to www.autismspeaks.org suspecting that something was different about my first child. I think I'd suspected it since the day she was born. But it would be months before I let myself act on what I recognize now as my first example of what is known as a "mother's intuition."
(I had to take a moment to cry a little as I typed that last sentence.)
I've decided to start this blog as a way of telling our story. Mostly as a therapeutic act for myself, but also, hopefully as a means of possibly helping someone else who might find themselves in a similar space in their own life.
Photography is my latest and my most favorite hobby on a long, long list of hobbies. This blog will showcase some of my favorite photos of Abby and anything else that floats her boat or mine.
Please leave me comments. I'd love to hear what you might have to share. Many blessings and Happy Spring!
