Cooper is Eight

Eight years ago my world was turned upside down with the arrival of my first born son. My Super Cooper.

The one who made me a mom.

As I sat down to type this post I let myself think back over the last eight years. And I thought about all of the words I could type. The stories I could share. The highs and the lows. The amazing joy he has brought me. And of course autism.

I’m struggling finding the words right now. Birthdays are hard. They are a reminder of so many things. So instead I am going to share a video of my beautiful boy. Enjoy.

And Cooper, some day when you read this, please know this:

Quite simply kid…You are the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

I am so lucky to be your mom. Thank you.

Cooper Turns 8

Today, Cooper turns eight. The milestone brings back so many memories about the journey of this boy, and why I feel so proud to be his mother.To put it simply kid…You are the best thing that's ever happened to me. www.findingcoopersvoice.com

When my son was first diagnosed with autism no one was talking about it. Autism was hidden. I vow to change that.
