I am a mother of twins. My daughter’s name is Lily.  Her sister is Maggie.  They are my world.  Lily has autism.  It in no way, shape or form defines her.  She defines herself everyday.  This journal is a place to write down the things that happen in her every day life so that she might read it someday and understand just how far she has come. When we began this journey I wrote some things down as a small windowimage into Lily’s life and that collection of notes can be read here: lilys story.  The updated version can be viewed here:  Lily: The Neverending Story.  This new website is dedicated to  the emerging process of what it takes to be a child with autism.

“My name is Lily.  Autism does not define me.  I define Autism.”
