Today, I’m wearing blue as  people around the world are observing World Autism Day.  My son has a form of autism, Asperger’s Syndrome. Autism now affects 1 in every 70 boys.  Frankly, it’s an epidemic and numbers are growing. Check the Autism Speaks website for more info.

CNN has a story today on the latest autism research. Be informed on a condition that may not affect you but will likely affect someone you know. If not now, probably very soon.

  1. I will be praying for your son and family as well as research for this condition we know so little about. Your sermon on suffering where you told about him was very powerful and touching!

    Thanks for the great Easter sermon too!
