Mother's Day Post

It is Mother's Day, and I want to say, if nothing else,that I am happy for all that I have gotten from my mother, Kitzi Dingley, including food, home, rides to school, work, friend's house, the various stamps, coins, musical instruments, and bottle caps I collect, art supplies, classes, time behind the wheel, notebooks, books, and getting help from her dad so I was able to attend the right school. Moreover, I remember her making suggestions that led me to volunteer at Ten Th...ousand Villages, start the JCCC Autism Spectrum Support Group, which later led me to start the Autistic Student and Peer Organization at UCM, going to UCM's THRIVE program, speaking at the Kansas Legislature for my fellow autistic, the JCCC Autism Beyond the Diagnosis Conference, going to UMKC's Disability Studies program, and her learning what it was I needed in life. I'm glad I didn't have to figure out everything in my life. I am also grateful for various mothers of autistic children, who don't feel the need to fix their children, accept their stress-related habits, communication, don't feel the need to portray them as an expressway for stress in their lives, and respect their right to be on this earth. I also want to give thanks to the various autistic mothers out their who led groups like the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network, the Autism Women's Network, blog to inform the world about autistic people, and teach disabled children in schools. Happy Mother's Day!

  1. ladies and gentlemen What Ben is saying is very true because my mom is someone that I admire as well my mom is very beautiful in her own way but yet she does need to stop being over protective around me yes all mother's do that to their child but in my case I have no one to support me in financial needs and who would go beyond what a person can do for their child or for anyone including families but my mom would she is tough but I would love her anyways because is not what my mom can do and I don't judge her on what she does or what she done but all people is to be judged by their heart towards anyone that is what I look for and for any relationship even in a romantic relationship I want to hear their side and my and my side before I make any judgement.

  3. You and I have a lot in common and are both able to draw understanding from our experiences. I hope I can continue to know a fine man like you so the world can better understand the lessons we learn while helping the worlds of disabilities such as autism and Down syndrome.
