Today is my 22nd wedding anniversary. I think of the young women getting married today, tomorrow, last month and wonder how many will have to face an autism diagnosis in their precious child? 1 in 5000? Heck no. 1 in 500? Old school. 1 in 250? We chuckle. 1 in 150? Out of date. I in 110? The good old days. 1 in 58 boys? Optimistically.
We need answers as to cause. We need prevention. We need treatment. We need palliative care for those who are here now. We need. We need. We need. And we will not give up until our needs - and the needs of the women who are putting on a white gown with a heart full of hope and love today - are met.
