Description


My wife and I raised three children together, one of which was diagnosed with high functioning autism. From the beginning we committed to mainstreaming Daniel by giving him access to all the typical things in life instead of yielding to his special needs. This was not for the faint of heart, or wallet. It was a trying and expensive process, but little did we know Daniels diagnosis would open doors we'd assumed had been barred shut. We realized that among the variety of things we faced each day with Daniel, each year one major story emerged as unique and, well, outrageous. As time moved on our passion toward mentoring and investing in others grew; it became apparent that we needed to share our lessons, failures, and most importantly, our successes.
