Autism Grandma


I read this and then I finally had to wash the dishes (at midnight) so I was thinking about you while I was doing that and remembering when I was your age and we had a dozen people living in this house: Fiancee with 3 young children, his mother, my sister and her daughter, my best friend and her daughter, and me and my daughter. Whew what a crew but it didn't even faze me. But now if there was just ONE child with autism in the bunch that would have changed everything---but THREE children with autism, and a mother active in advocating and educating for the entire autism community??!!!

I used to think that I was Superwoman when I was your age, but now I realize that I wasn't even close to Kim Stagliano, a REAL Superwoman who is able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, and also Annie Oakley comes to mind because Kim shoots straight from the hip and gives it to 'em with both barrels blazing!!!

You deserve this honor and I crown thee "Queen of Autism Moms":)


Congratulations Kim!!!!

michele i.

Mark Blaxill

congratulations!!!! I can't imagine anyone more deserving than Kim. (Notice also how Kim buried the lede here. We need to teach her how to toot her own horn a little ;-)
