I love Stories of Autism because the goal is simple: to share. It is in that sharing of personal stories that the mission of creating awareness, promoting acceptance, and inclusion comes to fruition.
With Stories of Autism, we’re not researching causes or raising money for a “cure” – we’re simply telling stories. We’re sharing struggles and celebrating the qualities that make each of us unique. In doing so, we’re fostering a better understanding of those living with autism. These personal accounts are important, and I’m thankful to play a small role in telling them.
This year I photographed five individuals on the Autism Spectrum.
To review, we shared a snack with Caeden,
did some housework with Noah,
studied with Dylan,
laughed with Aaron,
and were charmed by Thomas.
I am grateful for the families that came forward this year to share their stories, as well as the families that have participated in the past:
I’m also grateful for all of the readers. I appreciate your support for this project through your “likes”, comments, and shares. Thank you for helping make this a kinder and more gentle world for others.
