Autism Awareness Blog Hop

Hi all my crafty addicts,

Welcome to the Autism Awareness Blog Hop. If you have just come from Cori's Blog then you are on the right track. If you are just joining us, then please start with our wonderful hostess Cori.

When I first read about this hop, I thought of one special little boy in my life, the son of my best friend. He is the most adorable little boy and is full of life. Like many others, he has Autism. His parents struggle with this every day, as he goes to therapy, Dr. visits, and even is on a specific diet. It breaks my heart that any child has to go through this, let alone their family.

They had a  walk for Autism in Miami, Fl. in March 2012 and I decided to be an advocate for this as well. Like my own medical issues and ongoing battle with Leukemia, I know the importance of getting people involved with your own personal story and coming together as a family and showing your support to loved ones and friends.

Here is my project for this blog hop, I decided to make a flyer to show my support for Matt before his walk for Autism in March 2012. I hope you will show your support too.

  4. I feel the pain for your friend and Little Matt. I cant believe the trials and tribulations these precious children have to go through everyday just to do the simple things in life we all take for granite. I hope and pray that children with autism can one day grow into healthy functional adults. Although I believe some children function better then us normal people! Best wishes! Matt is adorable!
