Team Isabella Walks Again

This Sunday, for the third year, Team Isabella will walk for Autism Speaks, an organization which helps families affected by autism.
We walk because:

…Isabella is Boo and I am Booboo, team captain.

…although Isabella can speak, she still can not express herself in a “typical” way.

…every 11 minutes, another family receives the devastating news that their child has a form of autism.

…at least 1 in 88 children are on the spectrum.

…parents and families and people on the spectrum need a place to go for resources.

…money is needed for research. Yes, we want to know what causes autism. Yes, we want the option to cure and prevent it.

…because we want to at least FEEL like we are doing something, anything to make a difference.

…because, when I spend time with my friend’s neuro-typical four year old, I mourn a little bit despite loving Isabella just as she is.

…because we love. If you would like to make a donation to Autism Speaks through Team Isabella, you can contact me at bonhomie7@msn.com.

Many blessings, g

  1. Awareness is always a great thing. Your walk is a great thing. Good luck and have fun.
    You have put into words exactly how I feel about finding a cure and being around typical children.
    My son is verbal as well but conversations are just not his stronghold…yet!
