There is a saying in the autism community, "If you have met one person with autism, you have met one person with autism." While each of our children are unique individuals with unique struggles and equally unique talents, many moms find themselves facing the same struggles with not many who can relate. Some of our moms have been courageous enough to share their stories as sources of hope and inspiration, so other moms know they are not alone.
