After being told for the zillionth time that my kids don't "look autistic," I asked you guys to send me photos so I could make a video of what autism really looks like.
You guys totally delivered. I received photos from adults with autism, and parents of kids on the spectrum. And all of these photos are beautiful and amazing.
Here's the final cut. I hope I didn't miss anyone. Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, for sharing these photos of your families. I hope this spreads even a tiny bit of awareness of what autism really looks like.
I would especially like to thank The Eli Story for graciously allowing me to use their song Titles We Hold for the video! You can check out their website, like them on Facebook, and find their music on iTunes! (On iTunes, search for "The Eli Story.") They have a new album out this month, and if you're in the Chicago area, they're playing at the March of Dimes Walk at Grant Park on April 29.
|Um, yeah. How much do I love a band with the tagline "Quirky. Nerdy. Fun."?|
