Today I reached out to my Uncle Brendan in Vancouver for advice on an Autism therapy that Alex and I are considering. In his reply he suggested I begin a website/blog to reach out to other parents of children with autism. We are certainly in the thick of things now with trying to wrap our heads around Kate's diagnosis and organize her therapies. So, after thinking about it for a few minutes (literally minutes because Brendan gives the best advice) I decided I would start this blog. If it only reaches the members of "Team Kate" then that is fine with me. You never know, maybe Alex and I will help someone by sharing our story here. Ultimately, we would like to keep a strong network of people working together to not only help our Kate but to explore more progressive and cutting edge therapies for Autism. Furthermore, to hold accountable those therapies that are common place today and to spread the word about how many families are dealing with autism today. 1 in 88. So, thank you Uncle Bren, for starting us down this road. Thank you for being on "Team Kate" and we love you very much.
