My older brother is autistic and having spent my entire childhood explaining to countless people what "Autism" was, it is so refreshing now that people are trying to learn about it and understand it. I can only hope and pray that the efforts of so many to increase autism awareness will better the lives of children with autism and the families that sacrifice so much of their lives in caring for loved ones with autism.
This week, 66 blogs are participating in a giveaway blog hop related specifically to autism and raising awareness. Prizes range from amazon giftcards to books about those dealing with autism some way in their lives. Please go enter some of these giveaways if for no other reason than to read the stories and gain a greater understanding of autism.
