A family's story


Lisa is a stay-at-home mom, who does anything but stay at home. She acts as the main events planner and chauffeur for her three sons and partner-in-crime, Hubz. In addition to being the head of the household in most ways, she finds time to advocate for her children and their needs, and often finds herself stuck between hope and a hard place.

    Just noticed on Diary of a Mom that you are from the Midwest…that term means all kinds of things…since no one really seems to agree with where the Midwest is.
    I am a teacher in the Midwest…a teacher that has found a love and a special calling to work with students with ASDs. I just thought I would reach out…because if we are in the *same* Midwest…I would like you to know that I am around, that I understand, that I do whatever I can for those that I come in contact with.
    I am most easily contacted through my e-mail address.

  2. I just found your blog and am really enjoying reading it. I am also a mom living in the midwest raising three children, one of whom is on the Autism spectrum. It is quite challenging, but I’ve always been one for a challenge. Connecting with other Autism parents via blogging has been such a blessing to me and my husband, so I hope you don’t mind us “following” your blog. 🙂

    Hello. My name is Elizabeth Tobin. I am a graduate assistant for Dr. Mary Beth Werdel, Ph.D., an assistant professor of Pastoral Care and Counseling at Fordham University in New York. We are conducting an anonymous study to explore spirituality as a coping resource for parents raising a child with an autism spectrum disorder. The goal of the study is to increase our understanding of the ways spiritual variables may contribute to or detract from growth following the potentially stressful life experiences of raising a child with an autism spectrum disorder. It will take approximately 20 minutes to complete the survey.

    I wonder if you could help us find parents by posting a link to the research study on your blog or Facebook page? We would be very grateful for any help you could provide. If you have any questions about the project you may contact Mary Beth Werdel at mwerdel@fordham.edu

    Many thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
