Hello! I can’t begin to tell you how much it
means to me to be joining you today to help spread Autism Awareness in our
stamping community and beyond. The day Tami asked me to share my story by
writing the post for today’s hop I cried. It touched my heart to be thought of,
and to know that my son means so much to others.
My son Cameron is 9 years old
and he has Non-Verbal Autism. He wasn’t officially diagnosed till age 5. We are
so blessed in that Cameron is able to communicate by typing, and he is very
much able to let us know his needs, wants and feelings. My husband and I joke
about Cameron being better at typing then the both of us! We don’t let autism
slow us down, and because of that Cameron is a great traveler and we have
driven across the USA and have enjoyed trips the same way as most families.
My Autism fact is: From the Greek word meaning "self" autism literally means alone.
Cameron loves rainbows, and color. He sees
the beauty in the simplest of things and that is where the inspiration for my
card came from today.
God does give us rainbows, and Cameron is my rainbow. I used the set "Over the Rainbow" to create my card. I cut out strips of card stock and stamped the small heart from the same set to create a heart patterned background. I stamped and hand cut the sun.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
