TOPIC:  The capacity to smile one instant and at the same time have suicidal thoughts --  reality of parents raising/caring for children/adults with autism.

Families... Thank you for joining us one more time...

Today's topic is beyond relevant -- We gather and share our realities, not to suffer together... but to seek support as one - regardless of the differences in our lives.
Always remembering -- what unites is the fact our kids have special needs, some days are great and others are not... that is our life...

I am not here to tell you what to do...
But I've learned that only complaining about the not so great moments does not solve a thing.... so we'll share those moments where life may seem normal, we smile... and also, those that make us feel impotent and vanquished...

Last week was suicide prevention week -- I raise my voice and remind every mother, father, caretaker to seek help if you feel helpless... We are here.
