World Autism Day

I almost missed posting on this today, but I had to get a post up. Today is in fact World Autism Day.

I have to say CNN has done some wonderful programing today and has wonderful facts on their site. Larry King's program was wonderful and I have to say that my level of respect was already very high for Jenny McCarthy but it is even higher. I am in agreement with her as far as I do not consider myself anti vaccine, but anti schedule.

Very moving for me to watch this, and think back to that fever that at the time of Brae's vaccination, all the things I never knew. I am so thankful that someone out there like Jenny McCarthy is in our community. I also want people to understand that people are not saying all Autism is triggered by vaccines but at this time it is the number one trigger. I really liked this site on vacinations I look at how hard Brae has worked to speak, be social, etcetera. The way Jenny McCarthy explained it her son is not cured but recovered because he had to fight back after the vaccine triggered her son's Autism. Also one of the most powerful statements she made on behalf of the Autism foundation today "You may have silenced some of our children but you will never silence us".

We are on a totally gluten free diet. It make a huge difference in my boys! It is hard sometimes but having them on gluten is much harder.

I know that with Braden preservatives, artifical things etc make huge differences he does so good when we arent out traveling and we do mostly completely organic.

Yea, we do not do preservatives or artifical food dyes and almost everything we eat is organic. All those things really make a big difference but going gluten free made the most dramatic changes in them. Anyway- that's what worked for us. :)

Very powerful. Hey did you notice Nascar brings awareness to Autism too with those little pins they wear on their coats.

Good and powerful post!!!! You know the timing of the vaccinations and how many they got has been on my mind lately too and neither of my boy's have Autism. I have to agree with you on the scheduling though. I am sure that has a lot to do with it! Great Post!!
