"Lavish Your Heart" this season ... introducing Autism Coalition of NV (ACON) & my nephew Ian

______________________________

My nephew Ian ... by Laurel Veit

Twenty-six years ago a darling boy was born into this world.
My nephew Ian was quiet, a little too calm for a newborn
... hardly cried nor fussed, "practically perfect," ...
Twenty-six years ago my family had never heard the word "Autism."
But by age 5 we sensed that Ian was not developing mentally, physically,
emotionally or socially in comparison to "other" children of his age,
and like most parents, my brother embarked on a journey ...
The next 14 years the path to properly diagnose & treat Ian would be a
difficult, frustrating & stressful journey for my brother who found himself
as a single parent, working full-time & raising two boys ...
but each step was grounded in purpose & faith ... and driven by
an immense love for his little boy. 
Within the last 7 years, Ian has graduated from high school thanks to
his dedicated father, family, advocates & teachers who all gave of
their time, talent & love.
Ian works a little job at a nonprofit & lives just a few miles away
from his family in a home that my brother purchased & set up through a state program.
Ian's home allows him to experience a bit of independence,
a room-mate or two and 24 hour care.
Today, there are more faces of Autism than my 
precious nephew's ~ 1 in 68 children ...
... so this season, it is with personal joy that I invite you to
