While perusing one of my favorite scrapbooking blogs recently, www.Lisabearnson.com ,I came across a frame that I absolutely fell in love with. It was gifted to Lisa by a very talented scrapbooker named Michael Lazorchak. I was able to contact Michael, and ask if he would be able to make one for me as well, and he did!
What I love about this frame, aside from being unique, is that I am able to change the pictures whenever I want, to reflect the season, or whatever is going on in our lives at the time. I was so pleased when I received it, and had to share it with you!

It is my hope, that we will soon find the causes ,as well as a cure for all of those affected by autism. If today's show of support is any indication of what the future holds, I would say we are definitely moving in the right direction.
To find out more about our own personal journey with autism ,visit my other blog at www.hopeformyboy.blogspot.com .
