L'shanah Tovah

Family and Friends,

We wish you all a wonderful, happy, healthy and peaceful year. This has been our 'year of learning', also momentous, in that we celebrated so many things: Birthdays, having Adam in our lives, my boys and all of the wonderful people who help us with the boys. This has been a year of learning for us.

May you all see such happiness,
Tina, Adam, Jayce and Chance

The attached video is of K.C.(Chance) at the park doing what he now loves to do best at the park. He loves laying in the sand. He looks very peaceful and his body looks so relaxed when he's in the "icky sand" as I say to him. It was straight to the bathtub for him when he got home :)

LOL What does your van look like, I wonder?!!

I'm kinda overwhelmed right now, thanks for asking. I think it is more clear to me that J is not only autistic, but he might be the "not talking" kind. I don't know how to handle that. I'm not very happy working all the time on this issue and not seeing it "fixed," though probably with his three words I shouldn't complain to ya because you've BTDT wayy more than me.

I just feel sad and that I can't do ONE MORE THING. You know?

Happy New Year!

I know this is unrelated to your entry, but I wanted to let you know about a Webinar that you might be interested in listening to. On October 15, a dietitian by the name of Judy Converse will be speaking about managing a GFCF diet.

If you are interested, or know someone that might be interested, you can register for the event at:

We are all so blessed, I believe, in so many ways to have our special autistic and special needs children in our lives. It is all a matter of seeing and feeling and knowing that they have much to teach us not only about ourselves but about the whole world. It is also a matter of getting past the anger and frustration to see how they love us unconditionally and to cherish that with all our hearts. To see this and to acknowledge this is to be an awesome parent and to give back to them the unconditional love that they so deserve.

I see in you that you are the woman and mother and sister who cherishes your blessings and gets past all the adversity that has been bestowed upon you. As parents, we all have a wide range of emotions that we go through which is perfectly natural, but to be stronger than the emotions, to get past them and to truly care for and love our children is what it is all about!

I am so glad that you are in our lives because I have such admiration of how you genuinely care for your kiddos (including your brother Adam), you have been such a blessing to us and have taught me a great deal just by being friends.

love and hugs to you all!
