My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Am I really thinking of doing it AGAIN???

Have you heard of Autism Speaks???   Take a look!

Well, I guess  my 5 mile walk for March of Dimes last year did NOT kill me, but DID help to raise $700 to help with preemies like mine.    And I have come across a shorter family walk for a different non-profit that I feel even MORE attached to The 2012 Dallas/Fort Worth Walk Now for Autism Speaks!!

Where does the money that Autism Speaks raises go?
From the Walk Now for Autism Speaks website:

Our participants continue to tell us they want to ensure that as many dollars as possible raised through Walk Now for Autism Speaks go directly to provide critically needed research and family services. We have listened and we agree. Walkers and donors will know that more of their pledges are having a direct impact on our mission.
For example:
$250 Can provide four (4) Transition Toolkits
$500 Can provide nine (9) 100 Day Kits
$1000 Can provide twenty-five (25) Community School Kits

I'm excited about this fundraiser and I hope you'll get excited with me.

Autism speaks is an awesome organization. I've seen their headquarters in DC. Congrats on doing this great thing. Will be praying for you as you go forward.
