Update on Sophie and is he our first volunteer?

español

I’m having the craziest month in history.  First my husband left to work out of state, then he came back injured… that alone was enough, but now the kids have what I guess is a virus, because they have fevers without any other symptoms and are missing school and home school, not to mention that Sophie and I lost the Son-Rise rythim we had… sigh… (I haven’t even had the time to play with my Julep and Ipsy boxes 😦 )

Why Sofi’s journey?

español

On Sunday 18 I began one of the most important adventures in my life 🙂

Sophie, my daughter, has autism, is what doctors would label as “high functioning autism”.  We have tried several types of therapy that had taken us from Maryland to California, North Carolina and now Massachusetts.

Four years ago we found out about the “son-rise program“.  A different kind of therapy, where parents connect with their own child by being their therapist.
