Autism Awareness Month Giveaway

April is Autism Awareness Month.
Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a "spectrum disorder" that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause of autism, but increased awareness and funding can help families today. ~Autism Society

To celebrate I will have a GIVEAWAY. You can choose from a size Medium or Large bib (either standard or soaker) or you may choose a bandanna bib sz Medium or Large. (sz XL not included in this giveaway) in this Puzzle Pieces print).

To enter, simply leave a comment here telling us about the special child in your life (does not necessarily have to have autism :-). Open to US addresses only please. Winner will be chosen randomly on Saturday, April 7th.

I have tow very special children. My son is 15 and has cystic fibrosis, epilepsy, russell silver syndrome, and autism. He is doing great! My daughter is 8 and we just adopted her. She has Cerebral Palsy, non verbal, blind, hearing issues, wheelchair dependent and brain defects. She has thrived since being in our home and we have high expectations for her and my son.

David & Joshua are my miracle boys. Though doctors told they would not live past 5 years old. Today they are 27 & 21 years old and I thank God for them every day.
