Page comments do not give up on this little man or anyone else who is living in the fog of autism... i am no super mom either and i too was never going to be because i am autistic BUT i have three great kids all grown - am a university prize winner - respected professionally and have everything i could ever want - yes toast is just about the only thing i eat and people find me odd but i am autistic so i don't really care!! do not give up - do not let the fog swallow your little boy no matter what anyone tells you.. he needs you to keep him connect to the world xx Wed, 03 Aug 2011 07:05:26 -0700 donna wakelin The sentence about not giving up on your son was very emotional for me, I cried I hope this for my son as well. Thank you!!! Wed, 06 Jul 2011 03:23:45 -0700 Ashley Pinkney Maryann - I am so proud of you. You have exceeded all expectations, even your own. I started getting teary eyed when I read about your big dream. Our children are so important to us. Please continue to dream and don't ever beat yourself up -- you are amazing mom!

I was so unsure about it; that it may not be "right" for Generation Rescue, but it seems to have been exactly right! Yay! Wed, 11 May 2011 17:10:22 -0700 Maryann DellaRocco This is one of the most beautifully written pieces to explain our role as autism moms. Thank you so much for sharing this, I will keep it always. May the sun shine bright on your family & all your goals be achieved. Tue, 10 May 2011 20:03:13 -0700 Tyler Dahm
