He deserves an easier go. He deserves your acceptance and respect.

He deserves our unwavering commitment to do everything we can do to help him.

Today is World Autism Awareness Day.

Please be aware – otherwise, you could miss out on knowing someone as unbelievably amazing as my Charlie.


These are words of love from one of the most admirable mothers that I know, Mindy Minto. I recently had the opportunity to meet Mindy and her husband during a work trip with Daddy Russ. I immediately recognized that I had found a kindred spirit! She is a beautiful person inside and out and the love for her children Delia and Charlie shines brightly. Today is World Autism Awareness Day.

Look at this stunning little boy below. He has Autism.

Mindy’s words weigh on my heart this morning.

Charlie’s photo is imprinted on my heart this morning.

Charlie and so many other children in this world deserve so much. They deserve joy, laughter, acceptance, friendship, protection, and above all they deserve unconditional love. Take time today to learn about Autism.

Thank you Mindy for sharing Charlie with us. As I told her this morning…maybe one blog post, one photo, one word might touch someone. I hope it touches you.
