Walking for Peyton!

Sometimes I feel completely helpless when it comes to Peyton. He has made such great strides since being diagnosed last summer, but I don't feel I have contributed much to it. Now that I am less mobile, I feel even worse because I can't give him the rough play he needs. The other day he told me he wanted to make me better so he could play with me. Yea, pretty much broke my heart. But instead of being super grumpy about it, I am trying to find ways I can help him, now and in the future.

One great thing I came across in my Autism Newsletter, was the Puget Sound Walk for Autism Speaks. It doesn't happen until Sept. 17th, so I will be mobile by then, and it is meant for the whole family. That means all five of us Morgans will be heading up to Seattle to walk, and I am hoping to recruit others to join us. Most of my family is hoping to participate. I think it will be a lot of fun as well as productive. Of course, the point is to raise money for Autism resources and research, but it is also about Autism awareness. If any of you want to join the team, we would be thrilled or if you want to make a donation that is great too! We have a team page at http://www.walknowforautismspeaks.org/pugetsound/peyton

It feels great to be participating, I often feel like a bystander and leech to others hard work instead of part of the solution. Cheesy, yes, but I am hoping this can become a family tradition and something that we can use to eventually help Peyton connect to others like him and help him understand more about his diagnosis.

Collections also include colourful wall decorations Onitsuka Tigerwhich combine great design with safety. Many parents want to avoid having a framed and glazed picture on the wall so the soft padded wall décor Onitsuka Tigeritems and the soft printed wall canvases are the perfect solution as they are lightweight and pose no glass danger to the child.

Good to hear that a fund raising is going on just for autism. Children should be given proper care for they are so special. Continue to be on this program, because I know you could help a lot of individuals. Good luck!
