  1. This was great. Thanks for sharing it. I certainly am not the warrior mom Jenny describes. I too am happy with M just as she is.

  3. Thanks for sharing this, Bev & DallasYouRock.

    Is this a good place to post a request from Amy Pisani?


    It has been quite some time since Every Child By Two (ECBT) has asked you to take action on an issue related to immunizations. I write to you today with an urgent request for your assistance in reaching out to the Oprah Winfrey Show to urge that she dedicate a show to the science behind the question of whether vaccines cause autism.

    More than fourteen credible studies have been conducted worldwide exonerating vaccines and yet the media and entertainment industry continue to frame this as a debate. ECBT and our public health partners have reached out to Oprah’s producers countless times without success. However, I recently had a lengthy conversation with one of the producers who recommended that we initiate a letter writing campaign by commenting within the Oprah.com feedback section of the website. This information is tabulated to determine whether there is enough interest to conduct follow up shows.

    I urge you to take five minutes to fill out the Oprah Winfrey Show online form by following the link below. In your comments, please request that Oprah invite credible scientists and/or physicians to explain the science of vaccines to her viewers. We also would like her to invite parents who have suffered the loss of a child from a vaccine-preventable disease, and a parent of an autistic child who can speak on behalf of the many families that are frustrated over the continued focus on vaccines and their supposed link to autism and the therapies that focus on “repairing vaccine damage”. Please relate any personal experiences you may have with vaccine-preventable diseases or autism. In addition, please refer the Oprah Winfrey Show to Amy Pisani, Executive Director of Every Child By Two, for any follow-up questions. My phone number is (860) 443-1166.

    And finally, please forward this to your family and friends and request that they also reach out to the Oprah Winfrey Show.

  6. That was an absolutely awesome video! That's the perfect outlook for the parent of an autistic child to have :)

    This video has just given me a little bit more hope.

  9. Nice. Thanks for posting this. As a music therapist- along the way I realized that it's not about "fixing" the men and women I work with. It's about spending time getting to know them and then enjoying who they are musically.

  10. Awesome indeed! And teary. And warm and fuzzy. This is exactly what we do, just like with all our other children--teach them the skills they need in the world. Period. They understand a lot more than we give them credit for--like lots of other kids. Because they're just like them in so many ways.

  12. Hi everyone, I'm Cathy, the Retired Warrior Mom from the video. Thanks Bev for linking me. After reading the comments and a few other blogs here, I was inspired to start my own blog. It's really nice to meet some likeminded people. I really feel like an outcast in the autism support groups, going back to the day 8 years ago that I refused state-paid ABA of 20 hours a week because it just didn't seem right. My son Dallas, has had a blog on here for quite some time, it's about time I joined him. Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you all.

  15. Just occured to me, Bev, have you read the book 'The Eight' by Katherine Neville? It has nothing to do with autism, but thought you might be interested because of your affinity for that number.

    I mispelled affinity, didn't I?

  16. This brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for giving me this perspective. I have a long way to go but I'll get there as well.
