America Autism

Meet Carter. He is a 6 year old boy, who happens to have autism. He is SO much more than that diagnosis, though.

Carter is funny. He is smart. He is caring and loving. He loves pirates...and even thinks he is one. Most people who meet Carter, all agree on one thing. He’s happy. He’s always laughing and smiling, and just making the world around him a better place. That happiness...is all that matters.

As a mom, I threw what was “normal” out the window a long time ago. I don’t care what the world says is typical. We encourage Carter to be himself. I will spend everyday for the rest of my life trying to show people the beauty that is Carter. And working to get them to accept OUR normal. Autism doesn’t define...my silly pirate.
