World Autism Awareness Day #Lightitupblue

Yes today is the day where the world takes a look at Autism. 

I am a Mama of children who are HFA. (High Functioning Autistic.)

Meaning they are super smart wonderful little people, with a few individualized quarks. The main one are un able to read normal social ques, and for mine everything being extremely highly structured for those OCD tendencies. 

They are my children that created their own "theme song" for themselves. Apparently they are not human. 'Cus they are way too cool & special to be just that! Their brains gave them super powers to make them "Super Hero's". Meaning they are extremely analytical. Where calculus & Physic problems can almost all be done in their "Super Hero Brains" & it's fun!

I am as their Mama in complete awe of them. 

Did you know?

In 2011 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its estimate of autism prevalence in the United States to 1 in 88 children (1 in 54 boys and 1 in 252 girls). By comparison, this is more children than are affected by diabetes, AIDS, cancer, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy or Down syndrome – combined.* 

I hope you join me in bringing awareness to this fast growing disorder. Let people know it's nothing to be scared of, Just something to know about.
