I have a great autism family near me. We even have a support group set up, but we don't see each other nearly as often as I would like. Our lives are so busy with our children and just plain living that we don't get near enough time together. This is where social media comes in. It's there when we have a second to grab for ourselves. There are other moms out there that are dealing with the same things, every day. And Twitter and Facebook makes it so much easier to come together.
This is why I was pretty excited when I stumbled upon the "you might be an autism parent if" hashtag on Twitter. I stayed up late watching and participating, I have had several people follow me because of it. I was up this morning and greeted to 432 new tweets for the hashtag. Every one of these people understand!
Here are a few of my favorites:
