Advocating for Another

Following Dawn and her family's journey through PDD-NOS and ASD with two of her amazing sons, while homeschooling AND raising three other children...I've not only learned about Autism and related concepts, but have been able to put my new knowledge to use with my OWN five children, and daycare children, at our local park. I can tell them how to approach children, listen and talk in ways the child feels most comfortable, and to read their cues. Dawn is an inspiration to me and my family, but nothing could heighten my respect more to her most gentle soul than her local fight against a not-so-nice "neighbour" and her children's lemonade stand this past summer, which made headlines. She is the epitome of " beautiful inside and out."  — Brynn
