The Fight is not over......

Just the month is. .....APRIL IS AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH..........THANK YOU FOR BEING AWARE!!!



Please visit Anne at http://www.knitspot.com/ for an exclusive interview with Mr. Man!



I would like to take a few minutes and not talk about knitting, not talk about yarn or any fiber related topics *gasp*.........but to say thank you.

Thank you for all you have done for not only my son but others by being aware. The interview says it all. I have read Mason all the comments that were left and well, the following photo says it all.

Thank you all for sharing this month with us, for caring, for wanting to become more aware. Autism comes in varying degrees and on different levels of the spectrum but it shares one common denominator, it steals from our children, it steals from our families and robs us of having the best for our children. With your help and your interest, there will be more research and there will be more knowledge. There will come a day when we can beat this mysterious disorder. One day it will no longer have the power to rob our families and our children. We will one day de-mystify it's mysteries. Thank you again.

For more information on how to become active and more aware, please visit http://www.cureautismnow.org/ we still need you, our children need you.

Together Mason, one family, one day at a time. We WILL do it. I promise you. Mom

Mason wrote a wonderful Essay for Anne. You must be very proud of him. He really did help me to understand a bit more about how it must feel to have Autism. Thank you for allowing him to share that with us!
