For those of you with eyes like mine (LOL) I’ve zoomed in and circled the mentioning of us 🙂
Really would like to Thank Kandi Alexander of We Speak for Them Support Group for inviting us to be a part of this . Big Hugs to all of the other Moms that were there to join us as well to voice their concerns and stories: Tanya Hileman, Lori Garrett Silloway, Linda Mitchell, Ellen Clark, Rosemarie Dowell, and Elizabeth Steele . You all are TRULY AMAZING and I’m so Proud to know each of you 🙂
I would especially like to Thank the Lake County officers that attended and for listening to all of us as well as asking all of those questions. It was nice to be able to reply .
Some great questions were asked too! Like I said before..
“Hat’s Off to our Officers ! You have one heck of a job!”
Thank You again for acknowledging our families and for making this meeting possible.
Big HUGS from S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom!
P.S. I did share some pictures from this day below. Hope you enjoy them!
So I’m at Walmart with my Dustin and Lindsay . Dustin is walking through the store repetitiously saying Happy Holidays Mommyann …. Winter. Mommyann…. Snow. Then again Happy Holidays….. All of a sudden he stops and turns back… I turned to see what caught his eye…… This is what I saw (lol) Never a dull moment with Autism 🙂
(Enjoy this Autism Mini-Moment )

As if the Train Stations weren’t enough to make our day, now I’d like to acknowledge and Send a HUGE Thank You to Jenny the Owner of Rebounderz in Apopka and her Absolute Wonderful Staff!
I sure hope that after watching this video , it will encourage more of my families out there walking in my shoes to join Dustin & I for upcoming Time-Outs in person or online. There is NO REASON to “isolate” anymore!
I promise I will continue to seek out people and places that DARE to display the Autism Welcomed “Symbol”. I know it’s a lot to ask of them, but it is such a Heart-Warming way to say “without words” We’ve Got Your Backs Families Living With Autism.
So come join us next time , Look for the Autism Welcomed Decal, and KNOW…..You Are Not Alone and You Are Welcomed HERE 🙂
PLEASE REMEMBER TO PLAY THIS VIDEO FORWARD AND/ OR GET YOUR DECAL TODAY! I’d Love to share YOUR Smile!

Today is a Very Special Day! S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom’s son, Dustin turns 19 years old today! It took a little bit of pondering , but S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom finally plans a day she hopes will be a birthday Dustin will always remember. So with the help of her Family and New Found Friends Angel, Micah, Dee, John, David, Cody, the Conductor and the entire Cannonball Train Crew, even the Train Passengers themselves …….Dustin’s Autism Welcomed Birthday Train Adventure became a Dream Come True. I really hope more people and places watch this video and hop aboard the Autism Welcomed Decal Smile like The Cannonball Train and so many other Places already have.
Going out in to “Public Places” are so very difficult for families living with autism.
“How Wonderful it feels to “SEE” an Autism Welcomed “Symbol” when I enter a place that shows their Autism Smile before I even enter .”
An Autistic person shouldn’t have a birthday memory created in the “isolation” of his/her own home.
Every person like my Dustin deserves to feel welcomed , especially on their Birthday at a place to create a magical moment like we were able to. So please share this video as well as the autism welcomed video with ANYONE who is willing to Display their Smile with the Decal at their place of business/ home. Autism isn’t just about melt-downs, it’s about melting the hearts of people who actually care about families living with autism every moment of every day .
Sharing the Autism Welcomed Smile is a big deal; while you may think it’s really so small; you are really saying you care without words…..something an autistic person can so relate with ..
I hope you enjoy the video & BIG BIG HUGS!!!
Oh….FYI: You are going to absolutely LOVE Dustin’s reaction after he opens his last birthday present !
It was very unexpected 🙂

Wish I could say I had a nice time at the walk today, but unfortunately just before we left this morning, Dustin fell running out the door and after , complained about his back. But still wanted to go to the Autism Walk . He’s always so excited to see Ronald McDonald & of course get his picture with him . So We Came. We Saw. We Conquered. But our stay consisted of only walking one lap. I had to bring my Boo Bear home, only instead took him to the ER. No worries. He’s relaxing with the help of the doctor.
Took him to McDonalds to eat before taking him to the hospital to see why his back was hurting. He’s still complaining, so better safe , than sorry . Amazing how a french fry can bring such a sweet smile to his face .So sick of this place.UGH!
Just another example of the things we endure for our special guys/girls (LOL)

Whether you are a S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom, Dad, or a Family Member who has become one of those roles to a special person with autism…..I wanted to create a Memorable Mother’s Day Video that will hopefully bring you the comfort of knowing you’re not alone.
S.M.A.A.R.T.Mom is here if you need a friend 🙂
