She's precious! And cold, it looks like! Is she in the States or overseas?

BTW, I'll just introduce myself, a little late. I'm Catherine, responded to a blurb on Mormons your hubby did a while back. AutMom stands for "Autism Mom" - my older son is has autism, and it kinda redefines who you are, having a disabled child.

Anyway, Happy Birthday to your niece, and it's nice to be here :)

I was trying to figure out what your nick stood for. My first guess was you lived in Australia, but then you mentioned listening to stateside radio. . . *L*

I have a friend whose boy/girl twins were born just a month after R5. Her daughter has austism, and I've learned so much from her through the diagnosis process, and different therapies/treatments that they've pursued. I can understand how addressing the unique needs of a child with autism would very much become part of a mother's identity. *hug* How old is your son?

Oh--and my sister lives in Arizona, in the mountains. It's been chilly there, especially in the mornings, but their little town claims to have the "best year 'round climate on earth." *grin*

AutMom, I thought that maybe you were a car enthusiast. I'm an autmom myself. We're still in the diagnosis process and the lack of yes/no do this/don't do this answers is driving me nuts!

Samantha and TulipGirl,
I would be honored to share any information you'd like on autism, just email me by clicking on my name below. I've always said the thing about this whole ordeal that makes it worthwhile is helping others who are in the same boat. Others shared info with me that helped me rise up and become an advocate for my son (now age 6). If I can help others help their own children in the same way, I've done my job well.
