April 22, 2009 Autism Awareness Month Candlelighting Ceremony
I blogged about The April 22, 2009 Autism Awareness Month Candlelighting Ceremony sponsored by NAA-NY Metro in detail here, but wanted to share the information with my Embracing Wellness readers as well. I had the privilege to come together with other parents, grandparents, and advocates to mark Autism Awareness Month with a special candlelighting ceremony on the steps of City Hall in NYC - what an inspiring location (we even got a glimpse of the Mayor). Even though the weather was not cooperative, the rain could not dampen our spirit! Our NAA-NY Metro Advocacy Committee worked hard to pull together an event that honored our children, our families and all those who work to improve our children’s lives. Thanks to all who attended and participated!
