Autism Awareness Day

As some of you may know, I have twin boys.  This is Luke.

He is loud and crazy and roll-around-in-the-dirt fun.  He has more energy than 10 puppies and the strength of a gorilla.  He LOVES anything by Disney/Pixar and is attached by the fingertips to my iPod Touch.  His favorite food is white cheddar rice cakes (I know he didn’t get that from me!  lol) and he has a frighteningly deep obsession with 20th Century Fox (the logo! the fanfare! the searchlights! oh my!).

This is my other son, Adam.

Adam is sweet and gentle and loves anything with wheels.  He is very concerned with everyone’s feelings and is so empathic that he cries whenever anyone else is sad or upset.  He LOVES the Wonder Pets and his favorite “character” is the Fly Boat.  LOL

I just wanted to take a minute and show off my boys – both of whom are dealing with the challenges of autism, but are otherwise normal, healthy, lovely children.  Autism is quite prevalent these days and most people know someone who is autistic or has an autistic child.  Jodi and I made this kit to celebrate those people/kids/families.  We’re giving it away FREE and we made the colors slightly more useable than the usual primary-colored autism kits so that you’ll be able to use it to scrap all kinds of things!

Just click the links below to download my part of the kit, then head over to Jodi’s blog to get her part.

Thank you super-duper-extra-much to Jodi’s creative team for the beautiful layouts!

Now head on over to Jodi’s blog for her part!   :D

    Thank you so much Ellie, and it’s a great kit. I will go get Jodi’s parts too.

    I have a young friend here where I live, that has Autism. I live in Low Income Housing, and I kind of look out for him somewhat. Some poeple here have treated him badly; said mean things to him (grrrrr!), and that is not allowed here. So I let him know if he wants to report her to the office, I can write the letter (this one incident happened the other day).

    We are lucky with the housing here, as the office workers & all the way up to the Director, are on staff here in our building, and they will kick someone out for harassment when reported 3 times. He (Ian) was afraid to do anything and is afraid of the woman that harassed him, so I told the office.

    I also click at the Animal Rescue site – I try to get to it each day. ;-) Blessings to you and your kids! xo

    Hey Ellie, first thank you so much for the kit. I’m making an awareness page for a scrapbook challenge. The kit looks amazing. Thanks for sharing your boys too. I’m raising my granddaughter who sounds like she could be Adam’s twin. Every day with that kid makes me a better person. She’s awesome. She doesn’t have Autism but she has Sotos Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. Developmental delays, speech and fine and gross motor skills…she’s coming along and with a smile and a hug for each person she meets.
    Again, thanks for the kit and being a voice for all kids with Autism. xoxo
