Hi my name is Serena I have 4 kids 9,9,5 and 21 months. My oldest childDante has aspergers.Hehad been misdiagnosed and over medicated since 4. I realized he has A.S. about 2 years ago and finally got a dx earlier this year. He is now med free (except stool softeners) and homeschooled. He is an awesome kid and though we have some challenges I am blessed that he is very confident in who he is and that God made no mistakes when he made him. He loves track suits (like the ones the Beastie Boys used to wear in the 80s), breakdancing, old school M.J. like thriller and Biliie Jean. He is crazy smart and very artistic. He loves to build with anything and everything. Organizing things soothes him when he is over stimulated. He is very tactile, hence the track suits and set in his ways. He is an amazing blessing and I thank God for the privelede of being his mom.

A little about me. I am 28, originally from N. Cali, Bay Area. I now live in Camden Ar. with my 4 kids and an amazing, loving husband. I am a Christian through and through and my walk with Jesus is what gets me through each day. He has taught me to rejoice instead of complain and now I am finding there is so much to rejoice about. I love my kids and I am pretty sure they are 4 of the coolest kids around.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

how wonderful that you enjoy Dante so much. A.S. kids can give us so much if we just listen.

Hi, I am Marie. I have a 16 year old son, Michael, with autism. He is the love of my life. He enjoys music of all kinds. He just loves going to Church so he can sing. He also loves to draw. There is no room on his bedroom walls because they are covered with all his pictures. At least we don't have to paint anymore. He also enjoys playing baseball and bowling. Feel free to add me as a friend if you would like. We live in New York. Have a great night.
