My name is Lola and I am a proud mother of a wonderful 9 year old boy with autism and vision impairments. He brings the most amazing joy to my life! Autism Awareness has become a big part of my life since my beautiful son was diagnosed with the disorder at only 15 months of age. Today, 1 in 110 individuals is diagnosed with autism. Although it is becoming more prevalent, there are still so many individuals who know nothing about the disorder. I wear my Autism Awareness jewelry proudly wherever I go, and it always serves as an opportunity to share with others a little bit about the disorder and answer any questions they may have. I love to introduce others to my son because he is so pleasant and loving. Many people simply have the wrong idea of what Autism is, so they might be surprised to meet an autistic child in person and see how unique and special they really are.
