I'm always encouraged when I come across individuals, organizations and businesses that see our vision.
The fact that there are people willing to look past the differences of opinions regarding Vaccinations, DSM, or other controversial issues - and to focus on providing whatever information we can to the general public is phenomenal.
The phrase I came across this past week is one that I have enjoyed hearing the most - "We're all in the Same Sandbox"
More and more people I talk with are embracing this phrase... and I love it!
With all of our differences regarding our varying viewpoints regarding these issues, we're starting to see that we need to come together - and to work together.
Is it a challenge at times to work together when we disagree? Of course!
From what we are sharing to how we share it means so much to so many people. We're still a young and extremely diverse community. From those who are on the spectrum, the families, the organizations, and even businesses... we're all learning so much - so fast.
With so much going on, we are learning to respect each others differences... and many are willing to look past and look forward....
and it's that willingness to work together that encourages me.
I've had a dream for the past several years. One of which I've been reluctant to share openly, but one that is already in development.
Autisable has been a serious blessing upon my life, as I've learned so much from other families and individuals who deal with Autism. This knowledge has allowed me to understand what I've been going through as a husband and father of a child with autism, but more importantly - has helped me understand my son even more.
Personally we've had our own health and financial challenges - but we are working our way out of these challenges and pressing forward to achieve this dream.
