I’d like to take a moment to give a shout-out to one of my favorite bloggers. Her name is Kathy Hooven and her blog, The Awenesty of Autism, http://www.awenestyofautism.com/blog. Kate reveals a warm, compassionate, empathetic insight on life as a mom of a child on the spectrum. Her words will usher you through your own experiences, as if flipping the pages of your life while you laugh with her, cry with her, rejoice with her and problem solve with her. Kate’s unique and passionately descriptive way of detailing the finite while admitting she doesn’t always get it right is priceless.
I look forward to sitting with a cup of tea and reading Kate’s take on the good, the bad and the questionable aspects of life for her son. Various issues come full circle as she takes on her perspectives, hopes, and dreams coupled with the knowledge she gains about her son’s perspectives, hopes, and dreams. Kate seemingly does this with the greatest of ease even though I know for a fact it is not easy. Meanwhile, she lives each day, tackles each event and takes every moment in stride while remembering to breathe and indulge in an occasional glass of wine.
Thank you, Kate, for sharing your world with us and helping so many of us better understand our world as well.
