Suggested by Melissa Ño QueCache

This blog has helped me more than any other. I am a mother of a child with autism, and needed to hear from someone on the spectrum what it feels like. Not from moms any more. I know how moms feel, I am one. This one is from the perspective of a person on the spectrum, who is trying to empower others with his perspective. I don't always agree with him, but I feel I always learn something new.
