|Me, Cal, and Beckett at the 2011 Walk for Hope in Lafayette|
In honor of my son’s fifth birthday, which is in a few weeks, I have decided to spread a little autism awareness. I am not usually a person who discusses my thoughts and feelings or voices my opinion to hundreds of people, but it’s worth it for him. I am not an expert on autism by any means, there are tons of people who know way more about it than me, but what I can share with you and what I do know about is my son, Beckett. Like all the doctors and scientists out there, I have no idea what causes autism. I can tell you that it is not caused by eating lunchmeat while pregnant, letting your child watch TV, or not giving them enough discipline. People have made some crazy comments to me over the past few years about autism, and I don’t blame them. I knew nothing about it before Beckett was born, and that is sad. If I can teach one person one thing about autism, with what little knowledge I have, that will make me happy.
