Stories of Autism 2016 Wrap-Up {Gigi’s Joy Photography: Racine Special Needs Photographer}

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,

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:

Landon, Suzanne, Eion, Krista, Jonny & Nate, Briana, Brendon, Logan, Andy, Jacob, Eric, Sofie, Emalee, Tyler, Joshua, Anthony, Gavin, and Isaiah.

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.
