Two Brothers One Journey
In this post from Angela at Two Brothers One Journey, she shares her frustration with only hearing about "high-functioning" autism in the media. This post really speaks for itself, but our favorite line is: "... it's a strange disorder, and if you have met one child with autism, you have met one child."
Autism from a Father's Point of View
We know this isn't a "mommy blog," but we had to include it. Stuart of Autism from a Father's Point of View posed a challenge to the Minecraft community to stand against bullying on April 2, Autism Awareness Day. The internet responded in a heartwarming manner. Read his post to learn about the fundraising event that came out of his simple request, which will now fund servers where children with autism and their families can play Minecraft.
A Diary of a Mom
This one gave us chills. In a month filled with hope, advocacy and cheer, you have to focus on the advocates who aren't just making noise, but also actively working for change. Jess at A Diary of a Mom put together this fantastic post about Well Served Tennis Academy, a summer camp that teaches kids on the autism spectrum about tennis.
