“Eighteen years ago I believed I faced one of the hardest challenges in my life, I gave birth to my premature daughter, who we discovered was autistic. Unbeknownst, to me was the beginning of a journey of psychologist, doctors, neurologists, and therapist; a journey of unrelenting stares and questions. The uniqueness of my daughters autism explains, that why at 18 years old her favorite television station is still Disney channel.”
