The trials, tribulations, success and happiness of a family who happen to be raising a child with a diagnosis of autism.

The 411:
In June 2006, I decided to leave my job as Director of Product Development for a medical device company. After five years of splitting myself in two I decided to be a stay at home mom. I have two children 9 & 11, the older of whom was diagnosed with autism at age 2 1/2.
