Why we walk

with 2 comments

Tomorrow I’m going to join Panda Pals, a group headed by Pudding’s teachers, as they participate in the National Capital Walk Now for Autism Speaks.

We’re walking because every 20 minutes, another person is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.  Another family, just like ours, will be changed forever.

We’re walking to support the community that has supported us in the year since Pudding’s diagnosis with Asperger’s Syndrome.

We’re walking to provide assistance to those living with a lifetime of communication and sensory processing challenges.

We’re walking to fund research that will help to detect autism earlier, to help toddlers like Cubby to receive vital help for their development.

We’re walking for the parents of children who are newly diagnosed, and don’t know where to turn to.  Who need to learn a new way of communicating with their children.

We’re walking to show the world how proud we are of our special children.

We’re walking because every step leads us closer to understanding and acceptance.

We’re walking for them, because others have walked for us.

Thank you,

Spectrummy Mummy.
