Autism Matters Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog and the 2017 Autism Matters Blog Hop.  Quite a few Stampin' Up! Demonstrators around the world have agreed to take part in today's Blog Hop to help raise awareness and funds for Autism research and services for those with Autism.

Many children with autism have a reduced sensitivity to pain but may be extra sensitive to sound, touch, or other sensory stimulation—which may contribute to a reluctance to being cuddled or hugged.

Can you imagine what it must be like to have a child that you can't hug?  I have a dear friend whose son has Autism along with various other issues, and I know first hand that Autism impacts the entire family.  That's why this Blog Hop is so important...we hope to raise awareness and funds for Autism Speaks.

I used the Stampin' Up! stamp set Over the Rainbow for my card because I thought the sentiment was perfect for today.   We all need to believe that God gives us hope.

Following is a listing of all the fantastic participants who are giving of their talent and time to make this Austism Speaks Blog Hop and Fundraiser a success.
