Autism Understanding & Acceptance 2014 Day 24: Celebrities & friends

Celebrity spokespeople can be a mixed bag, especially in the autism community.  Holly Robinson Peete is nothing but wonderful.  Having good friends with whom you can share this crazy, frustrating, awe-inspiring, bring-you-to-your-knees journey of life with autism: priceless.  Thanks for asking me to join you tonight, Patty.

Honestly, the new friends you meet - like-minded, fellow parents of kids with autism - and the friends you had previously who have stuck around, are among the most important things you can have on this journey.
