I feel so blessed. I have late-stage Lyme disease. If you are not familiar with stories like mine, let me tell yah a bit about how I got here...in another post. I have been really sick over the past couple of days so my brain is just absolutely not here so I don't want to give you an inaccurate story or one that sounds like a crack-pot because I am kinda loopy. However, I do want to educate you in the epidemic that is bigger than AIDS. I will be posting more at another time.

Autism is such a broad spectrum umbrella... my favorite quote is "When you meet one person with Autism, you meet one person with Autism" because it presents so differently - it's funny though - my husband was worried about the diagnosis but I was relieved because it opened up doors for services and programs that otherwise might have been closed... my son is in a…Continue

There are those in life that we tend to admire from afar. For us, it’s the women who possess an inner beauty and strength that give them the courage to fight for a cause. It is the mothers, specifically, who find courage from within to protect their children while reaching out in the hopes of protecting your children as well.

In fact, we’re exposed to thousands of potentially harmful chemicals every day – and hundreds are showing up in newborns.
