A Pirate Boo Bear, A Witchy Mom, and Autism

For years I’ve been trying to help my son who has autism learn to handle going out into public places. To make it more fun and cool I started taking him to the Zoo and Mc Donalds (inside) with BOTH of us dressed up in our Halloween costumes. My older kids now adults think I’m silly because I dress up too, I respond, “What kind of a mom wouldn’t dress up with their son, even if he is 18 yrs old now 🙂 Life is too short not to have some fun.

Really would like to Thank Kandi Alexander of We Speak for Them Support Group for inviting us to be a part of this . Big Hugs to all of the other Moms that were there to join us as well to voice their concerns and stories: Tanya Hileman, Lori Garrett Silloway, Linda Mitchell, Ellen Clark, Rosemarie Dowell, and Elizabeth Steele . You all are TRULY AMAZING and I’m so Proud to know each of you 🙂
I would especially like  to Thank the Lake County officers that attended and for listening to all of us as well as asking all of those questions. It was nice to be able to reply .
Some great questions were asked too! Like I said before..
“Hat’s Off to our Officers ! You have one heck of a job!”
