Single Moms Raising Autistic Sons

Here is the cake that I made for him today. Tomorrow we will have pizza, pepperoni of course, and chocolate Elmo cake in his classroom with his little buddies. I want to thank my dear blogging buddies for helping me to feel better so that I might enjoy my son's birthday tomorrow. I will definitely take lots of pictures so that you can see him having fun at his party. I would like to thank K.C.'s mommy for helping me out when I was so low and rallying support for me in my time of need. But this is not about me, it's about my little angel and how he has grown up so much in 4 short years. He has shown such tremendous improvement and progress that it is simply phenomenal. You are my super hero Griffin and I adore you. You are the "Sonshine" of my life, the light in my darkness and the warmth in my cold cold winter. I am eternally grateful for the gift that I have received in you. I have been blessed with the most precious present that I could have ever imagined. As I have said before, you bring me tears of joy and of pain and for this time I have learned to savor the moments in the ways that I know how and to let you know how much I love you and appreciate your unconditional love. Regardless of your exceptional intelligence you are the greatest child that any mommy could ever have hoped for bar none. Just being in your presence is truly an experience in the beauty of life and living. You have saved me from an otherwise empty existence and there are no words to describe how enriched I feel and how proud that I am to be your mommy.

Hi Lora

What a wonderful cake. Happy Birthday to Griffin and you too Lora. My thoughts are with you both always, you are doing the most wonderful job with Griffin and reading your blog is uplifting and the words you write about yourself are courageous.

We are all batting for you and you have already made that home run.
Keep going with that tenacious attitude of yours. You are a wonderful, caring, gifted and spiritual person, anyone who knows you are very lucky to be able to call you their friend.

Sending you many hugs to you and griffin and take care my friend.
Luv always Kiralea
