Garage Door Cakes

"When he turned three years old, I brought out my inner “Martha Stewart” and baked a birthday cake that I knew no one else would ever imagine — a cake in the shape of a garage door."

Just another day in the life of a parent of a child with autism!

"It is never my intention to have him labeled ... I just want to have him understood."

"...I didn’t want to write this commentary to draw attention to my child. I just think it’s important for everyone to be aware that all too often there’s “more than meets the eye”. Before I had my son, I admit to judging a parent’s skills if the child misbehaved. But now I’m aware that we don’t know the whole story. I’m still learning patience and know that there is hope for each child diagnosed with austim, wherever they fall on the spectrum."
