Today is #autismawarenessday .

I struggled with knowing what to write on this post. Autism can mean so many things to so many people. And sadly, having an annual day or month of awareness has done very little to change the fact that autism rates are rising at an alarming rate and that very little is being done to actually be "aware" of the causes behind this. .

While many people who have high functioning autism feel blessed to be different and unique, other families struggle with children who are nonverbal, self-injurious, violent, and in pain. We have been in both places, and I know the challenges of having a child on every spectrum of the autism spectrum.

I'm not going to go into our story or challenges here. Today, I just want to celebrate my son and the amazing person that he is.

See, while it takes strength to raise a child that has been through what my son has endured, it is nothing compared to what he has dealt with on a daily basis. And while he may no longer qualify for an autism diagnosis, he still has burdens that most of us can't even understand. And yet he does it all with a smile on his face, kindness in his heart, and a ready hug for anyone who is hurting. He wakes up before the sun so he doesn't miss a moment; he loves animals, and he rescues bugs and spiders from an untimely death. He never gives up when something is hard for him, and he is the first to notice when I am sad. .

I love this boy so much that my heart aches. He is so much more than a diagnosis. I look forward to the day when no child will have to go through what he did, because it isn't fair, and it isn't right. - Isaiah 33:24; Daniel 2:44

Mom standing in front of the home where my grandfather and two uncles lived for awhile before coming to Canada 🇨🇦 #quarriersvillage #scotlandsbeauty #walkinhisshoes @quarriers

When my grandfather, Papa, was only 9, and lived just outside Edinburgh- he lost his parents to influenza. He and his two brothers, 6 and 3 were taken to Quarriers Home for Children...an orphanage that took in thousands of children. Then as children turned 14...they were sent to Canada to work on farms and earn a living and begin a life. Today we visited that place which still runs today. About a 1/2 hr west of Glasgow...the homes, about 40 of them, each housed up 30-35 children at one time, are now mostly privately owned. This is “cottage 40” where they were put. To walk the ground he walked and see where he lived before being sent overseas to work. It was very moving. Great day. #quarriersvillage #walkinhisshoes #scotlandsbeauty @quarriers

After a flat drawing day yesterday I was determined to have a better one today so redid this using brush lettering. It's one of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite books, although I wish it said "human" instead of "man". It seems fitting for Instagram. These little squares can be misleading!

Kwame was born to a mentally-challenged woman who was impregnated by an unknown man. Seeing him running the streets barefooted and wearing dirty ragged clothes with no one to care for him; we found him a home and we are proud to be funding his education with our CTN Scholarship Aid

Every time a kid comes to our house they step into a pair of my hubby's boots. They are smiling and clunking through the house feeling all good. I'm the proud wife who hopes the kids follow in his footsteps. Though his foot steps are big, I know if a kid follows his, the path would be well worth it. #grandneice #familyiseverything❤️ #success #footsteps #theywanttowalkinhisshoes #walkinhisshoes
